Trail shared by Tom Robson with improvements by Karl W

A flat trail with views of the Cathedral Group mostly useful for making loops in the area

Description

This trail connects Jenny Lake with the Moose Ponds - West trail and faint Lupine Meadows Trail. The trail is flat and runs parallel to the road for much of it's length. Although there are views of the Cathedral Group from it, they're no different than from the road. It serves mostly to make loops with the Moose Ponds - West trail and provide access the Hidden Falls / Inspiration Point area if parking at the visitor center is full. There is parking available at the southern end along Lupine Meadows Road for a decent number of cars - of course eventually this parking merges with overflow parking for the Amphitheater Lake Trial. The parking area at the middle of this trail was under construction as of mid-2019.
