  • Shallow water lake best for swimming.. better to swim at strings lake then Jackson lake.. bring you Owen kayaks paddle boats etc.. great view grand Teton from the lake parking might get little hard in June and July..
  • Leigh and String Lakes Trails have impressive and picturesque views of the Grand Teton, Mt. Owen and Teewinot which are called the Cathedral Group. This trail also leads to Paintbrush Canyon and Jenny Lake. The water looks inviting and refreshing. However in summer time, make sure to bring bug spray because there are swarms of mosquitoes along the wooded trails.
