TRANSFORMING GRAND TETON'S MOST POPULAR DESTINATION
The Jenny Lake Renewal Project was completed in 2019. The well-loved area's trails, bridges, key destinations, and visitor complex have transformed into a portal for discovery and now allow people with a wider range of abilities to connect with the park in meaningful, memorable ways. National Park Service crews dramatically improved access to iconic places such as Inspiration Point and Hidden Falls by building new stone steps, smoothing and leveling trails, and ensuring better drainage for rainwater and snowmelt. Work completed also reduces congestion and ambiguity by creating suggested directional trails, larger boat docks, increased restroom facilities, and designated areas to rest and take in the stunning views.
Backcountry improvements created a well-planned, artfully constructed, and intuitive network of trails, connecting more durable and better defined gathering areas at key destinations in order to allow meaningful wilderness experiences for generations of park visitors.
