String Lake is a great place to visit for hiking and Kayaking. Only a short drive into Grand Teton National Park from our hotel in Jackson to get to Dornan’s (the best place to hire a kayak). Once the car was all loaded up, kayak on the roof, paddles in the back we headed straight for String Lake. We made sure we hired out kayak as soon as Dornan’s opened and this really paid off because we pretty much had the lake to ourselves.

Once in the water we headed up in the direction of Leigh Lake as there is a short trail between the two lakes you can carry your kayak across. The Mountain scenery really is stunning and we enjoyed eating a picnic whilst floating and taking it all in.

Decided to paddle back and apart from a short delay in trying to remember where we parked our car this was a great day out.
