This is such a nice, easy walk along the lake. We didn't have a lot of time, so we walked along a short stretch of Leigh and String Lakes. I wish we had more time. It was beautiful, and not at all strenuous. There's even...More

Another beautiful lake in the Grand Tetons National Park. Hiked around it a bit but need to go back and kayak it a bunch. Very scenic.

We did a lovely short walk from the parking to Leigh Lake and walked along String Lake to get there. Leigh Lake is large and beautiful and we were alone here. String Lake was nice as well.

Leave String Lake behind you and take the quiet, flat, trail along Leigh Lake where you can enjoy a primo view of Mt. Moran. The day we were there we could see fog coming off of the glacier on Mt. Moran and the clouds were...More
