Description

Turn west off of Teton Park Road at North Jenny Lake Junction and continue roughly two miles to the Leigh Lake Trailhead (also known as the String Lake Picnic Area) passing the String Lake Trailhead on your left. The trail originates mid-way along the eastern shore of String Lake providing easy access to String, Leigh, Bear Paw and Trapper lakes. You may also cut off the String Lake Trail and venture into Paintbrush Canyon.

From this trail you'll experience amazing views of Rockchuck Peak (11,081') to the southwest, Mt. Woodring (11,518') to the west, and Thor Mountain (11,994'), Falling Ice Glacier, and Skillet Glacier to the northwest.
