We enjoyed our hike around String Lake. The first half of the hike was close to the lake and the second half was closer to the mountains. The second half was hard--not flat and level like the first but we enjoyed it all.

The 3.7 mile string lake trail is perfect for hiking with young kids. Not too many steep inclines or cliffs, with fun bridges to walk over.

A short drive off the loop road brings you to this serene setting at the base of the Grand Tetons. The quiet waters invite the canoe and kayak enthusiast to launch and enjoy the great views. The small picnic area also beckons for a snack...More

Our nephew, a local, took us to String Lake to paddle board and canoe. It was beautiful, empty and a perfect adventure. There was plenty of parking -- which you won't find at many close by locations, and easy water access for water toys. Good...More

But it’s become increasingly popular and well known. Come earlier in the day to beat the crowds. Early season is excellent too but beware the trail is often submerged till mid June or later. If you come in July, the beaches will be utterly thronged....More

Stumbled upon this lake and wow was it a find. Although we visited in September the beach at this lake was packed out with young families enjoying the lake. It was low key, laid back and very nice. A nice hike adjacent to the lake...More

A ranger recommended this hike, and it was well worth it! Not too hard, the lake itself was so calm and peaceful, and the hikers we encountered were respectful of how peaceful this place was.

Trail around String Lake was the best one we hiked. We are in our 50s - not in great shape, so finding a good hiking trail within our abilities made the trip to the Tetons. Great view of the lake - easy to follow trail.
