“it has a beach!”
Leigh Lake is located in Grand Teton National Park, in the U. S. state of Wyoming. The glacially formed lake is 2.4 miles (3.9 km) wide and 2.8 miles (4.5 km) long from north to south. Situated just southeast of Mount Moran, the lake is at the terminus of both Paintbrush and Leigh Canyons. The lake can be accessed from the Leigh Lake Trail which follows the eastern shores of String Lake a distance of one mile (1.6 km) and is an easy hike over level terrain. The Leigh Lake Ranger Patrol Cabin is located on the northeast shore of the lake and is on the National Register of Historical Places.
Folks, this lake has a BEACH! Also is crystal clear, and surrounding by stunning rugged mountains. Personally, the thing I like best about about this lake is that it's so much less crowded than the other lakes in Grand Teton. You'll have the place to yourself!
The hike from String Lake to Leigh is an easy one with awesome lake/mountain views all along the trail!
