Hi there!

 

Basically THE main reason for doing the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive is to go to the Jenny Lake Overlook in Grand Teton National Park.

This is a spot to see amazing views of Jenny Lake!

Jenny Lake is a kind of big lake, and there is even the Jenny Lake Loop Trail that loops around the lake for around 7.6 miles.

So this means that there are many spots that you can see Jenny Lake.

You can see Jenny Lake without hiking!

While hiking is one of the ways to see Jenny Lake, it’s not the only way! If you drive the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive, then you can see Jenny Lake without hiking.

If you want to go to THE Jenny Lake Overlook, and you want to be able to drive to Jenny Lake with a quick stop for amazing views… then that’s when you will want to do the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive.

You can drive to Jenny Lake!

To see Jenny Lake without hiking, you can drive the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive. As you are driving along the one-way Jenny Lake Scenic Drive, you’ll come across a parking lot. That’s the parking lot for Jenny Lake. From there, it’s a short walk to see Jenny Lake!

So the drive to Jenny Lake Overlook is the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive.

This means that it’s the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive that will allow you to see amazing views of Jenny Lake with a short walk from the parking lot.

The Jenny Lake Scenic Drive is a one-lane road, and it’s a one-way road.

There will be amazing mountain views as you are driving along Jenny Lake Road to get to the one-lane Jenny Lake Scenic Drive too!

Getting to Jenny Lake Road

Looking at google maps, the Jenny Lake Scenic Drive is part of Jenny Lake Road. (map)

You will find the turn-off for Jenny Lake Road located on Teton Park Road.

Teton Park Road is one of the main roads through Grand Teton National Park. It’s the western side of the 42-mile Grand Teton Scenic Loop Drive.

You will be looking for the North Jenny Lake junction.

If you are driving Teton Park Road from north to south, the North Jenny Lake Junction is a little past the Mountain View turnout.
