This is an easy, flat 1.8 mile hike from the Leigh Lake trailhead. It runs mostly along the shore of String lake. It’s a well populated hike, but not overly crowded in May. One day I’d like to come back and tack on Bearpaw and...More

I hiked this trail late September, when it wasn't crowded. It was beautiful and peaceful, with few people. Great views of the mountains across the beautifully clear lake. I continued past the north end to Bearpaw Lake, and from there down an unmaintained trail to...More

We enjoyed this easy hike and loved soaking our feet in the lake when we came to it. The hike was pretty easy and not crowded. The lake was serene. Wonderful views. We'd do it again.

The leigh lake trail was a wonderful hike. Very little elevation change and you can walk anywhere from a few yards to 8 miles. Great views.

On our 2.5 week journey through many national parks, 11 states and much more, this is still one of my favorite places. We took the trail around String and Leigh Lake and landed at a beautiful beach past the primitive campsites, where we laid out...More

we did the trail to the end of the lake but if you don't have a lot of time: just do the first 15 minutes! it stays more or less the same!

The hike takes you past the lake with the mountains reflected in the water. Some bugs, but nothing that DEET didn't keep away. Pretty level, and quiet early in the day.
