This is one of my favorite trails, easy, and with beautiful scenery. Great views of the lake. The day we hiked we got to see a large moose and his lady friend.

This hike was very nice! We hiked and birded. Would have been nice to be closer to the lake, but overall it was good.

We completed the loop and the Grand View Point spur. The trip up to Grand View gains about 800 or 1,000 feet in 1.1 miles. The trip around the lake is very moderate at best, however we were besieged by biting flies almost the entire route. They seemed to laugh off the bug spray. This is an enjoyable change of pace trail. Go early or late in afternoon for wildlife.

This is one of my favorite hikes in GTNP. Most Teton hikes involve hiking up the canyons between the Tetons and looking back out over the valley; this hike in the valley gives you spectacular views of the Tetons themselves. Other pros: it is relatively flat, relatively uncrowded, and a good place to look for wildlife. The loop around the lake is 6.6 miles. You have the option, about halfway around to take a spur and climb to Grand View Point -- the views are well worth the effort (add 2 miles round trip). I recommend starting at Two Ocean Lake Trailhead and walking counterclockwise (north side of the lake first).

Nice easy hike, lots of wild flowers, saw deer, two moose, and a griz. Amazing views only ran into three other groups but the trail head was full when we returned. Go early.

The trail circumnavigates the lake. On this day was unable to hike as a loop because the south side of the lake section of trail was closed due to bear activity. Hiked the north side trail to grand view point and then back out the same way.
