Description

Generally taken as a way to avoid the crowds on the Jenny Lake trail or Valley Trail, Hidden Falls Horse Trail is a lesser-used alternative to connect southern Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls/Inspiration Point. The views certainly aren't as good, but sometimes avoiding other people is worth it.
