The Leigh Lake Trail follows the east side of Leigh Lake through a beautiful wooded area. The lake is nestled into a narrow corridor between the road and Mount Woodring and Mount Moran. The trail ends at Bearpaw/Trapper Lakes to the north.

Only reason I gave it a 3 is because it was a very easy trail with some heavy traffic and the mosquitoes were unbearable. Other than that the trail and views are so pretty. Maybe do this trail but not at dusk.

Nice trail along the east side of Leigh Lake, add String Lake for a nice hike. Great views of the Tetons along the way.

The views here are like a movie. Greatest campsite I ever had was right on the bank of this lake. Water was Chrystal clear. Lake was completely still when we were there. Reflections of the mountains were so clear you couldn't distinguish between mountains and mountain reflection. Great backpacking trip for a beginner. Very family friendly.
