Description

Possibly the most popular attraction in the Park, Hidden Falls isn't quite so hidden. This 100-foot cascade is easily accessible and downright beautiful - a must-see.

Join a ranger to learn about the formation of this magnificent landscape on a hike to Hidden Falls and on to a viewpoint above Jenny Lake. This is a great family activity! To reserve your space, please obtain a token (limited to 25/hike - first come, first serve) for each member of your group at the Jenny Lake Visitor Center the morning of the hike.

After obtaining a token, meet the ranger in front of the Jenny Lake Visitor Center at 8:30 am. Be sure to have money for use of the shuttle boat across Jenny Lake (rates). This tour is offered daily.

Half-Day Hike: Take the Jenny Lake boat shuttle or hike from Jenny Lake TH.

Family Friendly: Take the Jenny Lake boat shuttle from southern Jenny Lake, the kids will love the ride as well as the shorter hike.
