A beautiful lake with gorgeous views that made every moment picturesque, absolutely a must see. The hiking was good, not as breathtaking as the views, and was absolutely stunning all around.

Start in the morning and hike your way around. Go up to Inspiration Point. Take a picture. Then, turn around and continue up. The water, the greenery, the asthma inducing hiking. . it will cure you of all your ills. Also. . . MOOSE!

Decent Old Town Canoes at Jenny Lake Marina. Nice kids working there, reasonably priced at $20 hr / $75 day, and just a spectacular lake for canoeing or kayaking. We practically had the lake to ourselves in the morning hours. One of the highlights of our trip to Grand Teton.

Great 2 mile hike and then hitched a ride on the Jenny Lake Boat back - was great because we had ages 9-69.

We drove through the Grand Tetons on our way to Yellowstone and I was stunned at the beauty of the park. There were a couple of areas that I knew I wanted to see but was totally unprepared for the gorgeous scenery. Jenny Lake, Mormon Row, the Snake River, the cathedral, all were an unexpected delight.

Jenny Lake is definitely pretty. It is one of the highlights of Grand Teton NP and it is worth the visit. However, the overlook area is overcrowded, especially in summer.

Jenny Lake is such a beautiful location. We hiked partway around the lake to the waterfalls by Inspiration Point before turning back. It's a popular trail for a reason.
