The hike to Leigh Lake is easy and very scenic. I highly recommend it! Once you get to the lake, the view is spectacular! The hike takes you along String Lake too.

This is the hidden gem in the Grand Teton National Park. It is so peaceful and tranquil hiking the trail around the lake. There are several places where you can walk to points that jut into the lake to enjoy a private moment. Lovely!

The trail to this lake runs along string lake which is just lovely and then arrived at Leigh Lake which is dazzling. It is an easy walk with a great payoff off this gorgeous lake at the end.

This was one of our favorite hikes in GTNP. Leigh lake is a sweet, quiet lake. A trail goes around the lake and is good for all levels of ability. Don't miss this one!
