  • We took the ferry from Jenny Lake to the beginning of Cascade Canyon and then hiked the steep path... Inspiration Point has great views. Continue your hike to waterfalls and other lovely locations.

  • We took the boat ride over, hiked to hidden falls then up the inspiration points then to cascade canyon. The hike is beautiful and I would rate it easy-moderate, not much shade so wear a hat and lots of sunscreen! We came mid day and it wasn’t too crowded.
  • My husband and I snowshoed all the way to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point yesterday. Unfortunately, because the snow covered most of the trails and we came out on the first day it opened, we were unable to find the Jenny Lake Trailhead from the South entrance that hugs the left side of the lake. Instead we took the trail that looks like the black dotted line more on the left on the AllTrails map (the Western leg of the Hidden Falls loop trail). We followed the tracks of other snowshoes. It takes you up the mountain to incredible views of the lake along the way. Just be aware that at one point, you’re essentially walking across a double black diamond slope over 3-4 feet of snow. After seeing the falls and Inspiration Point, we tried to find the trail that hugs the lake on our way back South (we decided not the do the whole loop around Jenny Lake since it was going to rain), but found bear tracks and decided to turn around and go back the same way we came from. It was difficult to hike this with snowshoes, so it would be incredibly challenging to attempt this without at this time. The bridges that cross the river were also covered in 4 feet of snow.
