This is a wonderfully attractive lake, framed by the Teton mountains. There are many turnouts from the road from which you can get to the lakeshore and take in the views. I believe you can also take a boat trip out onto the lake. Stunning...More

Take the boat trip on Jenny Lake, the views are amazing and give you a different look at the mountains. The trips can be crowded but the crew moves people with ease.

If you like the lakes at all, you will like Jenny Lake. We did see some elk while circling the lake. We did not partake of any lake activities other than viewing and enjoying the scenery around the lake.

We started our hike around Jenny Lake to the North with some great views of the Teton's and then around the river that flows into the lake when the leaves were changing. Make sure to go up to the hidden falls.

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.
