Jenny Lake Trail, Grand Teton National Park

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Spend a day hiking Jenny Lake Trail, located within one of the country's major national parks and offering sweeping views of Wyoming's foaming waterfalls and rugged mountain peaks. This 11.4 km (7.1 mi) trail offers hikes ranging from easy to strenuous; it attracts adventure seekers of all ages and fitness levels. The trail circles a lake created by glaciers about 12,000 years ago, and provides access to climbing routes leading to some of the tallest peaks of the Teton Range. If you don't feel like hiking back, you can board a boat for a return trip across the lake to the visitor center. Print or download a map of the trailhead before your visit, and be aware that black and grizzly bears inhabit the area. A visit to Jenny Lake Trail represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Moose holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • This is a nice and easy hike that takes you through very different looking areas. We got off the trail somehow but were able to find our way back without too much effort. Very pretty!
