Half the trail was closed for maintenance so we did String Lake to Moose Ponds and back. We saw a moose at Moose ponds, then two more moose on the west shore as we rode a 30 minute boat ride from the pier down from the visitor center. Pretty crowded trail though, we avoided the crowd by hiking the Jenny Lake road bike lane back to our car parked close to the String Lake trailhead. Good shortcut, we saw more wildlife there than on the trail itself.

A must if you're visiting the Tetons. I regret not taking my swimsuit because half way around the crystal clear water looked beyond inviting. I saw moose, deer and small wildlife. The view at the point is breathtaking, but was a bit crowded. I recommend making a day of it. Take lots of water and that SWIM SUIT!! Beautiful.

Great little hike, be sure to see Hidden Falls to the ~northwest of the loop.
