Loved to Death

Jenny Lake, Grand Teton’s most visited destination, hosts more than 1 million people each year—a number that was inconceivable in the 1930s when the Civilian Conservation Corps crews built park trails.

Over the years, this area has degraded and cumulative damage now threatens fragile habitat and prevents people with limited abilities or wilderness experience from exploring all the area has to offer.

The Jenny Lake area has been damaged by high use that has resulted in poor conditions on the trails, bridges, and facilities. Past maintenance efforts have helped alleviate some of these issues, but ultimately, extensive, comprehensive work is required.
