North of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Jenny Lake pools below the highest towering peaks of the Teton Range. The Jenny Lake Overlook provides the perfect vantage point to take in the high mountains and the cold glacial waters in one spot.

On a quiet day, you can hear the waterfalls across the lake as they tumble down towards the earth. You can also watch as the Jenny Lake Tour Boats meander across to the other side and drop hikers off at the Cascade Canyon docks. If you are driving through on Teton Park Road, the Jenny Lake Overlook is the perfect stop to get out and take in the panoramic vistas of the Teton Range.
