Grand Teton National Park ranger naturalists will also discontinue their daily Inspiration Point hike on September 4. The popular hike will be replaced with a program called “Explore Grand Teton National Park.” Visitors may join a ranger on a hike around the south side of Jenny Lake to reach a location where the Teton Fault scarp and the area’s tectonic geology become obvious. Meet a ranger at the flagpole in front of the Jenny Lake Visitor Center at 9:30 am for a 3 mile, 2.5 hour excursion.
Jenny Lake Boating began operating shuttles and scenic cruises on Jenny Lake in 2002, and their current contract runs through 2017. Contractual obligations require that the company provide services on Jenny Lake from Memorial Day through Labor Day each year, with the option to extend their operating season later if conditions permit. Jenny Lake Boating began operations this year on May 15.
The Jenny Lake Ranger Station is open daily 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through September 9, and the Jenny Lake Visitor Center and Store will remain open through September 23 from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. daily.
