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.

saw 2 grizzly bear the paint brush canyon intersection.

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.

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

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

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.
