Circle around String Lake for views of Mount St. John, Rockchuck Peak, and the Jackson Hole Valley. Begin by heading south around the east shore of the lake for a more gradual elevation gain. This trail is mostly covered but passes through an older, open burned area below the peaks before ducking back into the trees.
The String Lake Loop is an easy 3.7 mi (5.6 km) loop hike with 540 ft (160 m) of elevation gain.
