Jenny Lake District Trails

Hidden Falls

If you wish to spend your day hiking, there are four trailheads near Jenny Lake with hikes ranging from easy to strenuous. From south to north, they include: Lupine Meadows, Jenny Lake, String Lake and Leigh Lake trailheads.

  • Lupine Meadows: Turn west off the Teton Park Road at the Lupine Meadows junction. The trailhead is roughly 1.5 miles down a dirt road. The Lupine Meadows trail begins along the valley floor and then climbs the ridge of a glacial moraine. There are several trail forks offering opportunities to continue along the valley floor or ascend to view glacial-cirque lakes resting below granite cliffs.
