Tremendous progress has been made and visible signs of transformation are evident at South Jenny Lake. After decades of use by millions of visitors, there were social trails that were heavily eroded and damage to resources in the area. Crews worked throughout the summer to improve South Jenny Lake and create an intuitive trail system, sustainable lake overlooks, and engaging interpretive areas that will give a wide range of visitors the opportunity to truly enjoy Jenny Lake and expand their understanding of the area. Construction is projected to be complete by summer 2018.
Thank you to the many individuals, foundations, and organizations whose incredible generosity supported our centennial gift to Grand Teton National Park. Here are some great images from frontcountry work that is currently underway and slated to be finished when the snow flies.
