This lake is warmer than most lakes in the park so lots of people swim there. You can bring your own kayak too. There are many hikes starting around there as well. Bring your bathing suit and a towel!

This is a lake you can take ictures and have them made into posters or jigsaw puzzles. Just dazzling. You will be swept up in the serenity and beauty of the area. Bring bug spray. Mosquito population is not on the endangered list!

This lake is easily accessible from the parking lot and a nice spot. What I'm really going to discuss is the String Lake Loop Trail which will intersect and is part of the trail (everything is marked). We decided to do the loop (I think about 2-3 miles) on the 3rd of June this year. Lovely trail normally, but several... More

Leigh Lake is a gorgeous crystal-clear lake in the mountains. A must see if you are in the area. It's a short hike and well worth it. We did the eight-mile hike to Trapper Lake and I would skip that part in less you plan on fishing!

The views are gorgeous and you can hike for miles and miles in the hills above the lake. There are enough people swimming too and there are nice beaches but the water seemed a bit cold to us. Refreshing for dipping feet though.

This has to be one of the best lakes I have seen. The water is Crystal clear. On a good sunny day, it's not too cole either. It was less than knee deep when we visited. A perfect spot to spend some time in tetons. On the flip side, it can be crowded. Visit early morning.

Fairly easy hiking paths from String to Leigh Lake; beautiful views everywhere!! The path around Leigh goes completely around the lake, but be sure you can make the time commitment and have plenty of water!

We hiked about the first half mile, just over a bridge. We saw two bear and turned around because we didn't have bear spray.

We hiked to this lake, the trail follows along String lake. We were 5 of us total, so didn't worry about surprising bears. Saw several mule deer eating in the woods near the lake. Very nice hike, well-traveled paths.
