Hiking Trails:
* Jenny Lake Trail:
Jenny Lake Trail makes a complete loop around the scenic lake.  It also leads to two great spots in Grand Teton National Park which are Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point.  It is a relatively short hike to the waterfall which is around 5 miles round trip, but you can shorten the distance by taking the ferry boat ride across the lake.  The distance around the entire lake is roughly 7 miles. Inspiration Point is at an elevation of 7200 feet. But the hike to this from the base at Jenny Lake is around 1 mile with an elevation gain of 417 feet.

* Taggart Lake & Bradley Lake Trail:
This trail is a little under 6 miles roundtrip loop and is well worth the time and effort.  It is a very flat trail that is perfect for families.  Both lakes offer beautiful settings since they set directly beneath the most scenic section of the Teton Range.
