Length: 9.7 mi • Est. 4 h 40 m
This is an unbelievable hike up into the base of the Grand Tetons via a boat ride across Jenny Lake. During the winter season when the boat transport is closed this route can be done by parking in the String Lake trail head parking lot and starting your journey there. This hike will bring you deep into the Teton Mountain Range. This popular hike will start from the shore of the lake and take you up to the 200 foot tall Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point which provides great views out over the National Park. Most people will stop at this point but this guide will take you a little further up into Cascade Canyon where you might spot a moose or two before heading back for the boat return across Jenny Lake.Show more

String Lake sits at the bottom of the Grand Teton Mountain range and there are gorgeous views from this trail. The lake is a popular spot for swimming and kayaking as the water is crystal clear and calm. Accessibility: There do not appear to be any designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of String Lake Road at the south end of the trail. There are 2 designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of String Lake Road at about 0.2 miles at the String Lake Canoe Launch. Both of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. There are 2 designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of String Lake Road at about 0.5 miles at the Leigh Lake Trailhead. Both of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. These parking lots have been marked with waypoints. The trail surface is a natural packed dirt and typically at least 2 feet wide. The most accessible portion of the trail is the first about 0.5 miles. The estimated grade is gentle (3% or less). All-terrain tires or motorized equipment may be needed for the surface type. After about 0.5 miles there are additional rocks, roots, and steep (8-12%) and very steep (over 12%) sections. Trail goers using wheelchair/mobility equipment or strollers may need to avoid the sections after about 0.5 miles for safety due to the surface type and grade.
