String Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Short hikes really don’t get much nicer than this one, a mostly 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.

The first 0.3 mile of the String Lake Trail is wheelchair accessible, with magnificent views of the Teton Range over placid String Lake. After passing by the picnic area and parking lot, the trail is no longer wheelchair accessible but is still double wide and in terrific shape, with more sandy beaches and outstanding views. The Jenny Lake Moraine horse trail comes in from the east."
