Description [Suggest Changes]

Turn west off the Teton Park Road at North Jenny Lake Junction and continue roughly 1.5 miles to the String Lake Trailhead.

The trail originates at the south end of String Lake and heads north along the eastern lakeshore. This portion of trail is flat and meandering. As you round the northern end of the lake, you'll pass a junction with Leigh Lake Trail and Paintbrush Canyon shortly thereafter. Simultaneously, the trail begins climbing moderately up the hillside above the lake. It then contours and descends to a terminating junction with Jenny Lake.
