This is a nice easy trail that is easily walkable in tennis shoes. Love the views of the Tetons and the dense forest. Take a moment to breath in the Lodge pole pine smells, if it has been a warm day the aroma is absolutely the best. This is a great hike as you can take as little time or... More

We did this trail as an add on to Jenny Lake Trail. Lovely trail with lots of shade.. .beautiful river into the lake... We saw lots of kayakers and next time, we'll be doing that for sure.

An easy trail that skirts the lake front. Beautiful scenic overlooks as well as forests. Well traveled and picnic site at trailhead. Canoes and kayak launches available. Restrooms and ample parking.

Leigh Lake is a hidden gem that connects almost to the north end of String Lake. It takes a hike or a paddle and portage to get there, but the beauty is well worth the effort. Solitude, spectacular scenery, and pristine wilderness await. We kayaked the perimeter of the lake and basked in the stunning beauty nestled up against the... More

From horseback the trail along the east side of the lake is very easy going and you can pass bear paw lake on the right and go on for a picnic at a beaver dam at lake head. The views of Mt. Moran highlight the volcanic pipe and the front glacier. The lake itself is serene with a few canoes... More

Do walk here from the string lake picnic area. Being a lunch. Start out early. Make conversation on the trail to alert bears you are coming. You will want to come back, perhaps with a backpack and a camping permit, for more

Took the family out on a canoe from String Lake over to Leigh Lake. Beautiful and serene. We paddled to the far end of the lake, had a picnic on the beach and then headed back to String Lake. One of my favorite days I've had in Grand Teton National Park! Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful! Easy shoreline hike with magnificent mountain views! Well worth it. You can hike to the picnic area from the Jenny Lake trailhead, or vice versa. There is also a boat ramp if you have your own kayak/canoe. For a longer lovely hike, keep going to String Lake, which is also gorgeous. Bears have been known to eat out of... More

Wish we'd spent more time here. People rent watercraft at Dornan's and we should have too. Enjoyed a lovely hike along String Lake, perfect for my 7 year old, with plenty of places to stop a rest or have a snack. Remember to pack out all of your scraps and trash, and keep food close at hand. We heard lots... More

Our easy hike up to Leigh Lake was effortless and once there we were inspired by the beautiful white sand beaches and warm blue shallow waters. So much so we shed our hiking boots and soaked our feet in the warm waters with sand tingling between our toes!! All under the beautiful blue sky surrounded by peaks of beauty! Truly... More
