Lovely views of a clear mountain lake surrounded by mountains. Access by car or numerous hiking trails.

Took the boat shuttle and hiked up to Inspiration point (about 1.5 miles). You can also hike 3 miles each way from the parking lot. Due to construction, it was difficult to find parking and I had to circle the lot for about 15 minutes...More

We only stopped for a short while to admire the view of this relatively small lake with dramatic mountains behind. I would recommend if you have the time to go for a walk here and experience it more fully.

When exploring Grand Teton National Park, you MUST stop at Jenny Lake and take in the breathtaking views! Absolutely magnificent! There are trails to walk on while taking lots of photo opportunities! The lake is so pretty with the mountains behind.....like a postcard!

We took the boat across Jenny Lake then hiked up the mountain there. There were many interesting rocks and waterfalls along the way to the view. We saw pikas running in the rocks, too. One of my favorite places in the park.

Another great hike near the lake is the Amphitheater Hike. The lake is cold and deep, so probably not the best place for a kayak ride.

We stayed in Jenny Lake Campground for 4 days and made the short walk towards the lake every day - it's especially beautiful in the early morning

Hello, Jenny Lake boat shuttle closed for the season on 9/11. You should be able to rent a canoe in the town of Jackson though and launch at the boat ramp at Jenny Lake.
