The Grand Teton park consists of numerous imposing peaks and glacial lakes. One of the most fascinating is the Jenny Lake, which mirrors the Teton peaks. There are several viewpoints overlooking the lake, where you can take great photos. A trail circumnavigates it, surrounded by meadows and picnic spots. There's a large car park, but arrive early in the summer, as it's one of the most popular parts of the park.
One of the most popular trails in the Teton park is the one leading to Hidden Falls. The climb to the falls starts from the far side of the Jenny Lake parking lot, reached by a boat service or buy a nice walk of a couple of miles. The rushing waters of the river crash down onto the rocks below, creating an impressive waterfall.
The steep, winding climb up Signal Mountain offers a stunning 360 degree view on clear days, from the Grand Teton on one side to the valley of the Snake River on the other. The climb is four miles long. Near the top there are two viewpoints, the first with a direct view of the Teton, the second looking down over the valley.
This beautiful walk, one of the easiest in the park, rises gently from the valley to the foothills of the Tetons, reaching the two lakes, Taggart and Bradley. You can leave your car at the parking lot, although places are limited, so get there early if you're traveling in summer. From there it takes 2.5 kilometers to reach Taggart Lake, and a further kilometer to get to Bradley. We highly recommend the path here, with the round trip taking you through a thick pine forest and beautiful fields of flowers, particularly colorful in late June and early July.
One of the most famous images of the Teton park, present on virtually all the postcards that you can buy here, is an old wooden barn in front of the towering snow-capped peaks of the mountains, which rise from the flat plain. This barn is part of a complex of wooden historical farms, which is found at the intersection of Moose Junction, connecting the road from Jackson to Antelope Flats Road. Follow this road for a few kilometers until you reach the complex of buildings. This area is very scenic and peaceful, and if you are lucky, you might spot some herds of bison and elk nearby.
