  • We did a number of back pack hikes and this one too was beautiful. We packed a lunch and enjoyed the afternoon.  more »
  • Came kayaking at the suggestion of a friend who lives in Jackson. Skip the waterway from string Lake and enters the Leigh Lake. Yu here does a boat with a motor, so even beginners can enjoy. Limited people to trek, guests can enjoy a very quiet.
