If you want a beautiful hike, take the Bradley Lake/Taggart Lake trail. This hike is about 3 miles. You can make a turn and go around Bradley Lake which adds another 2.9 miles for 5.9 total. The trail is not difficult and fairly family friendly...More

We combined this walk with a visit to Bradley Lake first then visited Taggart Lake afterwards. It is only 5 miles or so and doing it this way you can do a loop walk, fairly unusual here mostly out and back the same way.

I didn’t start the hike until 5:30, so I walked pretty fast, for an out of shape old guy trying to beat the sun. Round trip to Taggart Lake was about an hour 20 minutes. I spent about 10 minutes at the lake and the...More

My wife and I made the hike to Taggart Lake. Enjoyed the hike itself (the exercise) and also enjoyed seeing the beautiful lake. The hike does take a little bit of time so plan accordingly, but worth it.

This is only a short hike from the trailhead and well worth it for the views of the Tetons overlooking the lake. We had only planned to go to Taggart, but the hike was so quick we decided to go on to Bradley Lake as...More
