Description

One of the best viewpoints in Grand Teton, Inspiration Point is unique in that it looks away from the Teton Range, not towards it. This, however, lends itself to stunning views across Jenny Lake and over the Jackson Hole valley.

Tie this into a trip to Hidden Falls and you'll have visited two of the best features Grand Teton has to offer!

Short Hike: Take the Jenny Lake boat shuttle across Jenny Lake and start the Lake Solitude hike. From there, turn left onto Cascade Canyon Trail.

Family Friendly: Although steep, kids will love the view.

Gem Type: Viewpoint
