“One of the most popular trails in Grand Teton and maybe the world...”— Tom Robson
If you're looking to add a little flair to this awesome run, be sure to head up to Inspiration Point on Cascade Canyon Trail - the views of Jenny Lake from there are awe-inspiring. Additionally, you'll pass Hidden Falls, an over 100' waterfall.
The Cathedral group consists of the following peaks: Mount Owen (12,928'), Middle Teton (12,804'), South Teton (12,514'), Teewinot Mountain (12,330'), Teepe Pillar (12,266'), Cloudveil Dome (12,026'), Nez Perce Peak (11,901'), and Buck Mountain (11,938').
The vistas are especially good on the eastern side of Jenny Lake, so plan accordingly.
From the Jenny Lake trailhead, the Jenny Lake trail is one of the most popular runs in Grand Teton National Park, and for good reason! This easy run circumnavigates Jenny Lake and provides pedestrian access to Cascade Canyon Trail, Hidden Falls Spur (to Hidden Falls waterfall), and String Lake Trail.
As mentioned earlier, don't miss the view of Hidden Falls or Inspiration Point, unless you're crunched for time.
Aspen, cottonwood, alder, and willow trees abound on this run.
