String Lake Horse Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Short day hikes really don’t get much nicer than this one, a flat loop around a gorgeous mountain lake in the shadow of the high peaks. It’s also a good choice for an early-season hike because the snow usually leaves the area long before it gives up the high country.On the String Lake Trail, the first 0.3 mile is wheelchair accessible with spectacular views of the Teton Range over placid String Lake.This is a piedmont lake formed by valley glaciers at the head of Paintbrush Canyon.The same goes for Jenny Lake at the head of Cascade Canyon and Leigh Lake at the head of Leigh Canyon. After passing by the picnic area and parking lot, the trail is no longer wheelchair accessible, but it is still double wide and in terrific shape and offers more sandy beaches and outstanding views."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Grand Teton National Park (Falcon Guides).
"String Lake is a long and narrow lake connecting Jenny Lake to Leigh Lake along the base of the Teton peaks. String Lake is a shallow, sandy lake that warms up from the sun, making it popular for swimming. This easy hike circles String Lake, crossing bridges over streams and offering some of the best views of the Tetons."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Grand Teton National Park (Day Hike Books).
"This is one of the most relaxing and easygoing—and thus very popular—hikes in the park. The nearly flat trail winds through a variety of habitats and traces the shoreline of the smallest in a string of tranquil piedmont lakes, all at the foot of the awe-inspiring Teton Range. Swimming and boating round out the recreational options.Whenever you can get in and out of the park, this Loop hike is a good choice. There are a couple of short, sunny sections, but most of the route remains cool and shady all day long. Swimming is most enjoyable in July and August, after the lake has warmed up a bit."
--Andrew Dean Nystrom, Top Trails Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks (Wilderness Press).
