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

Inspiration Point was closed but I took the Jenny Lake boat shuttle to the west lake dock and hiked up to Lower Inspiration Point. Manageable hike.…

Dry - Only challenging part is close to the peak. There is a rock scree that is difficult to navigate and taking the wrong path leaves you vulnerable on the face. This is ascending out of the Paintbrush side.
