  •  I agree on GTNP for horse rides (9+ / 0-)

    Though you can also take some in the Shoshone National Forest between Yellowstone and Cody. The Tetons ones will be much more scenic though. Several of the Dude Ranches in the Hole have rides available.

    The the thing that makes the Jenny Lake Trail tough for the occasional hiker is the length. It is 7.7 miles around the lake, but can be shortened in half by taking the shuttle boat across and hiking back or hiking around to the opposite side and taking the shuttle back. It is very easy to see why Jenny Lake is the most popular part of GTNP. Parking fills up early, sometimes by 9am.
