“Circumnavigate String Lake on this mellow, but very crowded trail.”— Tom Robson
Family Friendly The views along this trail are amazing. Get the whole family up close and personal with the Grand Teton giants.
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.
