There aren’t many hikes of this distance that follow the shoreline of a beautiful lake the entire way. This makes the Jenny Lake Loop hike one of the most popular in Grand Teton National Park. Jenny Lake is very popular. Many park visitors take the boat to see Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. As you approach the boat dock area, the trail veers away from the lake slightly. You don’t see the boat dock unless you take a short spur trail down to the lake. You might not need to do that, but you definitely want to take the 0.8-mile round-trip up to see Hidden Falls and to soak in the view from Inspiration Point. After being inspired by Inspiration Point, continue along the lake to the South Jenny Lake area.
