Must-See Destination #2: Leigh Lake

Just north of Jenny Lake is Leigh Lake. Less well-known, but just as beautiful and striking.

The glacially-formed lake, also with environmentally cool, pristine waters, is two-and-a-half miles wide by nearly three miles long. It sits just southeast of Mt. Moran and where the Leigh and Paintbrush canyons meet.

You can get to the lake by way of hiking the easy, flat Leigh Lake Trail. You’ll find the Leigh Lake Ranger Patrol Cabin on the northeast shore. The Cabin is registered on the National Register of Historical Places as of 1990, by the way.

Here’s a quick piece of footage of the lake…

You want to be here. We want you here.

You want to be here. We want you here.

To experience the breathtaking mountains and wide fields. To watch elk and moose grazing. To smell the crisp pine-scented air. To swim in clear, cool, pure, glacial lake water. To hear the music of the streams. To taste the freshest produce and the juiciest steaks. To meet some real-life cowboys. To touch those legendary arches at Town Square. To make way for the majestic bison as they regally trod the roads. To dazzle at the sunrises and unwind with the sunsets. To gaze upon the billions of stars that light up our nocturne valley.

And it’s okay to say hi to total strangers here. Heck, if you don’t do it, they will. Stop in to our office even, and meet our SeeJH team. The door’s open and the coffee’s not too bad.

Yeah. We know you’re coming. That’s why we do what we do here at SeeJH. To pave the way. We know you won’t stop smiling after you leave. We want you smiling before you arrive.

You come here for peace. You come for reverie. And you come for fun.

See you soon, friend. See you soon.
