The summer of 2014 marked the official start to the construction phase of Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake. Throughout the season, trail crews completed exhausting work on the west side of Jenny Lake creating beautiful trails that greatly improve access to one of Grand Teton's most popular destinations. Next summer trail crews will focus their efforts on improving the heavily used and eroded trail leading to Inspiration Point, as well as building new bridges along Cascade Creek.
This phase of trail work is part of a comprehensive renewal project that will transform the entire Jenny Lake area: frontcountry, backcountry, and the South Jenny Lake plaza. Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake is a $17 million collaboration between Grand Teton National Park Foundation and Grand Teton National Park.
