Jenny Lake Loop from South Jenny Lake Trailhead Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Jenny Lake sits in a glacial moraine at the mouth of Cascade Canyon beneath the spectacular Teton peaks. The lake is the second largest lake in Grand Teton National Park. (Jackson Lake is the largest.) It stretches 2.5 miles along the Teton Range with a width of 1 .5 miles.

This popular hike circles the perimeter of gorgeous Jenny Lake on a level, well-trodden trail surrounded by magnificent scenery. On the west shore of the lake, an optional side trip leads to Hidden Falls, a waterfall that drops 200 feet along tumbling Cascade Creek. The hike may be shortened two miles by taking the boat shuttle across the lake from the Jenny Lake Ranger Station to the west shore."

Was a pleasant enough hike there are a lot of people around even in September but the weather was beautiful the sky was full of clouds and it was a great view of Jenny Lake and the grand Tetons. Just understand it''s a half mile after you leave the boat but it''s very steep. My girlfriend had chest pains and she turned around and went back there''s plenty of good views in other parts of the park.

I did this hike as part of the hidden falls hike that shares the same trail head. Hiking to these ponds is not really worth it. There were no moose at either pond during my visit, but the trail does provide a pretty decent view of Grand Teton. Because of the popularity of the hidden falls hike the trails are packed with tourists.
