]Circling the park’s second-largest lake makes for a mellow, view-packed trip. You can hike it in either direction, but hugging the eastern shore earlier in the day means you’ll escape more of the road noise from the Jenny Lake scenic drive. From the east side, the park’s biggest peaks rise directly across the lake—the biggies like Grand Teton as well as Rockchuck or Baxter Pinnacle. On the west, wildfire-burned areas alternate with thimbleberry bushes and forest; from here, you can also tack on the out-and-back to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. A trail to Moose Ponds heads south around the southern tip of Jenny Lake (stop here to look for the namesake beasts) then circles back to the start.
