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 of Labor Day weekend 2017, the trail to Hidden Falls remained closed.

Awesome view!!! Highly recommended One can see the whole region from there. And once at the inspiration point, access to the next trails is readily available and mostly on flat ground following a very scenic creek full of wildlife.

After hiking most of the morning, we decided to stop there to eat our packed lunch. Perfect stop to take in the view.

Can totally agree with why this is named Inspiration Point - it is breathtaking and we were so lucky to visit on the most beautiful August summer day! Jenny Lake is beautiful from any angle but from this vantage point, exquisite.

An easy hike. Well, easy if you are in moderate condition. Harder if you are.... well..... a couch potato. The view is nice, but the hike is fun.

Like the other responder, we went first thing in the morning, but the parking lot was jammed as was the trail when we came back around noon.
