Mount Moran looms large in this hike along a large lake just north of Jenny Lake, especially at the start—but you’ll also earn a front-row view of Teewinot, Rockchuck, and Mount Woodring, and probably shake many of the Jenny Lake crowds. The trail starts on the northern end of String Lake, then traces the eastern shore of Leigh Lake through woods with frequent openings to gaze at the peaks. The beaches you’ll pass provide the best uninterrupted views. Once you’ve hit the northern tip of Leigh, you can also continue another .9 mile to Bearpaw and Trapper Lakes, two smaller, picturesque lakes with even more solitude.
