Reviewed October 15, 2012

Beautiful hike. Didn't have time to make it around the whole lake but hiked for 2 hours with nice views and not to strenuous.

Nice easy trail for exercise when the air was smoky. Beautiful views of the fall trees and mountains.

“String Lake/Leigh Lake”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Did the 3.7 mile trail around String Lake. Mostly easy with just a small bit of climbing. In our 60's and not particularly fit but we enjoyed this walk. Took about 2.5 hours as we stopped a lot for photos andthe view of the Tetons is up close on the far side of the lake. Aspens were turning so really colourful. Take time to sit for a few minutes and just take in the scenery and the solitude.

“Little known gem”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

There's an easy trail around String Lake to Leigh Lake, and surprisingly few people go beyond String. We enjoyed kayaking up String and porting the boats the short distance over to Leigh. You hardly see a sole once out on Leigh, and the fishing is much better.

“Worth a hike”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

What a pretty lake! Worth a hike. There is a great trail to the lake starting near the Jenny Lake Lodge. Its an easy hike with wide, level trails. Watch out for the bears that seem to like the campgrounds along the way.
