The view from Inspiration Point draws thousands of visitors each year. Jenny Lake lies below to the east and the Teton Range towers to the west. On a clear day, you can see the Yellowstone Plateau to the north, the Absoraka and the Gros Ventre ranges to the south. You feel as though you are high in the mountains, yet you are only 420 feet above the lake below. You are standing at the mouth of Cascade Canyon that slices through the heart of the Teton Range inviting you to explore.
Hidden Falls engages all your senses – the 230 foot (70 M) cascade fills your view, the thundering water drowns out speech, the spray chills your skin, and the air smells crisp and clean. As the name suggests, these falls are truly hidden. You will not seem them until you are less than 100 yards from the viewpoint! During peak run-off, the water ricochets off the outcrops, but even late in the summer, the water is still forceful. Snowmelt feeds Cascade Creek by flowing into the channel and by soaking into the ground and rising back into the creek.
West Boat Dock- You can access the Lakeshore Trail from the boat dock and The Cascade Canyon Trail. Hidden Falls is about half of a mile from the boat dock and Inspiration Point is about a mile away.
