Wear comfortable shoes and take the boat shuttle across Jenny Lake. The views are amazing and the hikes are doable for anyone. This was our best day while visiting Jackson, Yellowstone and the Tetons.

We took a short hike around Jenny Lake and highly recommend it. It is an easy walk for most and you really work up an appetite for a great lunch at Jenny Lake!

Jenny lake offers great hiking opportunity around and alongside it, as well as breathtaking views of the Tetons. We took the boat shuttle to the Hidden Falls and Cascade Canyon trailhead ($15.00 per adult round trip).

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.
