Last year Jenny Lake became one of my favorite places on Earth. The water is gorgeous, the mountain views are damn near perfect, the campsite is a 5 minute walk, you'll run into wildlife. I feel guilty any time I visit another lake. Sorry, Jenny. So sorry...you're just too far away!
Something for everyone
Jenny Lake is absolutely gorgeous. It has something that everyone of any age or experience can do. You can stick around close to the parking lot and still get a great view, or you can venture deep into the woods and find a more secluded trail to hike. Pretty iconic in the Tetons.
The Perfect Picnic
If you're looking for a quiet mountain lake escape, there's no better choice than Jenny Lake. Even though a crowded parking lot and marina are nearby, it's not difficult to find a secluded section of beach for an afternoon picnic. Pick up sandwiches at Dornan's, pack your swimsuit and towel, and have a relaxing time.
