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.

Decent walk for beginners by the Lakeshore.

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.

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

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

Family hiked this trail with the ranger led group which starts at 1:00 pm. The hike was 3 miles long and lasted 3 hours - not sure why AllTrails says it's 8 miles even the trail map matches. It was very nice and easy. We saw a pair of trumpeter swans and a beaver den. A great view of the mountains across the lake.

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!

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

fantastic views of the valley and lakes. our 5 year old was able to hike the whole thing.

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

Easy hike with nice views but the second loop is really poorly maintained.

There is nothing like road biking in the Tetons! Great bike trail through beautiful country!

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

Great views of String lake & Teton Mountain range. Kids enjoyed wading in the stream between Leigh lake & String lake.

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.

Beautiful moderate hike around String Lake. Great views of the Cathedral Group of the Teton Mountain range.

Nice trails around Colter Bay

Fun hike with the kids. Lots of birds, including a Trumpeter Swan on Swan Lake.

The mountains are so beautiful. We went in Middle of June and there was still snow on tops of mountains. So far out of my adventures this one is the best!

Wonderful and well maintained trail around the Colter Bay area. Surprisingly, many people don't do the whole loop (at least when I was there), and I was by myself for some time near at the end of the peninsula. You get some great views of the lake and tetons in the background. Easy, fast, and beautiful area if you happen to be stopped here.

This is an easy-to-moderate loop located in the Colter Bay area of the park. It offers a nice stroll through some natural bird habitats, as well as decent views of the Tetons through some sections. Overall, this trail is appropriate for most ages, as the elevational change is pretty minimal.

it was a fun little loop to do during the winter. Not very many roads are plowed during the winter so we had few options. But it was worth the little trip. Has some awesome views!
