After doing shorter hikes in Yellowstone we decided to push ourselves to do something longer than 2 miles. So glad we did. Beautiful views of the lake and the mountains.

An absolutely beautiful hike entered around String Lake. Very minor elevation gain after the lake as you head into the mountainside. Go counterclockwise on this trail. Takes a few hours but the views are stunning. Great "in between" hike.

Cute little hike. I'd rather do this than the whole Jenny lake.

Like someone else, this was the hike I did the day after Delta Lake as a more restful hike. It was also the day before a more strenuous hike so the perfect in between hike.

I went counter clockwise (im not sure how it is shown here) and am really glad I did. All of the little tiny paths off the main trail to look at the lake are worth it. I got there at 8 am and am so glad I did. The water was so calm and clear. I’ve never seen mountains reflecting in the water like this. It was breathtaking.

Definitely an easy hike and so worth doing. Just beautiful.

LOVED this trail. Gorgeous views and easy enough for our four year old to do the whole loop. Great family hike.

I would rate this as easy. The meadows are pretty lush with berries and flowers. Highly recommend going slow and observing flowers and fruits growing around the trail with several bees and butterflies flapping . This was our "recovery" hike after delta lake. In the end we just sat by the lake and swam a bit. A lot better than being at the beach. Loved it.

Beautiful hike. This trail is not strenuous, but there is a rise in elevation that might be hard for some folks. We had a lovely trek, stopping often to take pictures and to catch our breath.

Beautiful trail, my kids 13, 10, and 8 loved this hike. They enjoyed jumping into String lake for a cool off after the hike. The trail does get busy during peak season, so I do recommend going early for a parking spot.

did this with Jenny Lake last week... start early.. just missed seeing a grizzly and moose (seen by people hiking towards us) but saw lots of other wildlife.. would spend a day playing on this lake if had more time in area!

This is a beautiful trail with great views along the way of the mountains, meadows covered in wildflowers, and the lake views most of the way. It’s not full of solitude unless you go early, but we still had some quiet sections. We also went up the Paintbrush Divide trail up to the lower camping zone and passed some lovely rapids enroute. It gets you a bit more elevation so if you want to keep it easier just stay on the String Lake loop. A really nice day hike!

Quite an easy walk with a great view of the mountains, stream, lake and forest. Has a good mix of shade and open areas, has mosquitoes and can be crowded.

Excellent trail with incredible views! Not strenuous and well worth it. We were treated this afternoon to a bear killing a baby deer or elk right on the trail. It was amazing to witness in person, a little scary, but definitely incredible to witness.

Easy walk. We had a grizzly cross in front of our path this afternoon!!

Gorgeous views but much of the tail is underwater and it's a bit confusing if you want to walk the perimeter. Would recommend going to the hidden falls or just wandering around

Great easy trail. Gives plenty of reflections of the Tetons. Still a few snow banks on the trail but still worth the walk.

Only did the East side of the lakes (So we made it an out & back), pretty views of the mountains, but the mosquitoes ate us alive, & since we got a late start we decided to turn back

Excellent trails for all ages and abilities. You can do as much of the loop as you are comfortable with. The mountain side of the loop has some moderate elevation gain but is a beautiful walk. Bring bear spray as a precaution.
