This hike can get busy, but the views are wonderful and if you hike a bit further past the Point, you'll leave most of the crowds behind.

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.

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.
