Jenny Lake, located in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, is a stunning glacial lake renowned for its crystal-clear waters, breathtaking mountain scenery, and recreational opportunities. Situated at the base of the towering Teton Range, Jenny Lake is a popular destination for visitors seeking outdoor adventure and natural beauty.

Formed by glacial activity during the last ice age, Jenny Lake is approximately 1,191 acres (482 hectares) in size and reaches depths of up to 423 feet (129 meters). Its pristine waters reflect the rugged peaks of the Teton Range, creating a picture-perfect backdrop for outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, fishing, and wildlife viewing.

Along the way, visitors can enjoy the tranquility of the lake, the soothing sound of its waters, and the fresh mountain air.

Jenny Lake is also a popular destination for fishing, with opportunities to catch a variety of trout species, including cutthroat, lake, and brook trout. Anglers can cast their lines from the shoreline or rent a boat to explore the lake's deeper waters in search of trophy-sized fish.
