    This was a great small hike from the boat dock. Only about 1 1/2 mile one way. You can hike an extra 2 miles if you don't use the boat to cross the lake. The view at to the top was great. You are at 7...  more »

    A brief hike from the landing dock of Jenny Lake Shuttle to an overlook, perhaps 500-700 ft above the lake. An extremely popular destination with areas showing considerable wear from foot traffic. As ...  more »

    Pretty scenery but quite a hike. The boat trip across the lake was lovely. We were told about this trip as a tough climb for the first half mile and then up to four miles on level ground into the valley between the mountains. I didn't bring a carpenter level along with me but I think my interpretation of level might differ from theirs. It was indeed very pretty scenery on the hike up and at the top of Inspiration Point and they were right about the tough climb. For me, it was a worthwhile trip. But as we were about a half hour into the four mile portion of the hike, still climbing gradually uphill - though certainly no where near the rigor of the first part of the climb up the mountain - I knew I was finished. While the return downhill was much easier than the uphill climb, the tendency to drive my toes into the front of my boots made it a bit less comfortable. At a risk to my machismo but to put this into perspective, we saw people making this climb in sandals and in platform shoes. Perhaps they were not properly dressed for the climb. But the man running down the steep portion of the trail while holding the hands of his two young sons did shame me.

    Great hike. My 5.5 year old was able to make it so if you have children this can still be done. The views are great and very much worth it.

    Great hike. Short if you take the ferry over, took us 2 hours hiking from the visitors center. Beautiful views of Jackson Hole and Tetons.

    There are two spots on this road. You can go all the way to the top and get an incredible vista of the entire Jackson Hole Valley. Then as you decent back down, the second stop offers AMAZING sweeping views of the Tetons & Jackson Lake. Both stops are worth it, but bang for buck, the second stop is hands down worth the drive and MAY be the best view in all of Teton National Park.

    Fairly easy hike for average person. Beautiful lookout at the top. Don't forget to look up along your way for some nice views of the mountains!
