This trail was great with our kids! Saw a mamma moose and her two babies. We went to Polecat Hot Springs and the Huckleberry. Great with kids over 6. I say this about the age because you do have to cross the fast flowing creek to get to either of them. We also saw otter at the bridge at the asphalt and elk not far from there.

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.

Trail was peaceful with beautiful views of Grand Teton. A thundershower interrupted us briefly but provided a unique view of the mountains and lake. Although we did not see bears, there was evidence of bear activity a points along the whole trail. The outer trail was left to us with some well deserved private time for hiking honeymooners.

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.

Nice and easy walk with beautiful views

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.

saw 2 grizzly bear the paint brush canyon intersection.

Easy paved walk to see wildlife in Willow Flats below. There is an unpaved trail that spurs off at the top of the hill, but I did not have time to explore it. I went early in the morning and saw moose, elk, and golden eagles. Though I did not see any, bears are supposed to frequent the area as well. The plagues dotting the trail are very informative.

Nice easy hike. We used this as a starter hike to make sure we were okay in the altitude. The lakes are very peaceful, and once you get off the paved portion of the trail, the crowds thin out.

The views!

Easy hike with kids and great scenery everywhere. Loved this spot.

This is really a beautiful hike if the sun is setting. We saw a frog while walking and were immersed in trees. Dirt path for most of it while on the island.

Gorgeous! We were tired from paddling in the morning but I'm so glad we did this. It only took 1.5 hours with several stops for swimming and resting. Amazing Teton Views! No bears for us today.

Trail doesn't lead to anything view or interest. Just a walk in the woods.

A bear crossed in front of us on the path so we didn't finish the loop completely but what we did see was beautiful!

Great view

Amazing views. Fun hike with the family.

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
