Named for the Shoshone wife of the famous trapper “Beaver Dick” Leigh—there’s also a Leigh Lake in the park—Jenny Lake is the heart of Grand Teton National Park. Escape the crowds by hitting the lake’s northeastern shore, accessible by a one-way scenic drive, or on the passenger ferry that crosses the lake all day during the summer.
