Lake Solitude

Lake Solitude

Either a 16- or 19-mile out-and-back hike from the Jenny Lake trailhead (the distance depends on whether you take a ferry across Jenny Lake), Lake Solitude is easily the park’s most popular backcountry lake. This is not without good reason. At 9,000 feet in the back of Cascade Canyon, at sunset Lake Solitude reflects the Cathedral Group—the Grand Teton, Teewinot, and Mt. Owen.
