Hidden Falls Trail is a relatively short and easy hiking trail to Hidden Falls in Grand Teton National Park. To access this trail you can either hike here from the Jenny Lake Trailhead or the Leigh Lake Trailhead, or take a much quicker route by ferrying across Jenny Lake to the start of the Hidden Falls Trail. 

Once you've made it to the other end of Jenny Lake, it's a quick 1-mile roundtrip hike to a picturesque 100-foot waterfall made by snowmelt. 

If you're looking for a much longer hiker, you can hike along the Hidden Falls & Jenny Lake Loop for an almost 8-mile hike. If you choose this route, plan for at least a half day of hiking.

Hidden Falls Trail Reviews

easy hike with some slight inclines but nothing crazy, waterfall is huge & beautiful! can get crowded, so get there early if you want to avoid the crowds on the trails and the long wait for the ferry

It’s a pretty big waterfall you walk into! Definitely another one to do early to avoid the crowds and maybe be able to get a picture of the falls without a bunch of people hanging out at the base of it

This waterfall was twice as tall as I expected. Beautiful the whole way, whether you walk around Jenny lake to the trailhead or take the boat.
