Lovely hike with great views of the two lakes, the Tetons beyond, and back into the valley. Note that the southern part of the Bradley Lake lopped is currently closed. I hiked this on a sunny day and went counter-clockwise, so hit Bradley Lake first, continued around it, climbed up a ridge (I didn't find it long or especially hard climb) then down to Bradley Lake and back the northern leg to trail juncture and parking lot. Although it is a popular trail, the only congestion is really at the lake sides. If you have time to wander a bit around the lakes you shoul find a quiet spot for a break.
For the one day I had at Grand Teton, and hiking on my own with DH as my taxi service, this was seemed like the top choice for a good workout with great views. Most other trails are either easy, or the strenuous ones take more hours than I had.
It's some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever encountered but DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE ITS DIFFICULTY!! This is not an easy hike but all this considered it is absolutely 100% worth it! I would recommend going up the face (the shorter steeper trail) and down the huckleberry ( the longer trail), this will help conserve time, allow you to see new scenery both up and down, and save your knees ( as opposed to going down the face, which I do not recommend)! Start early because you will want all day to hike and will want time up top to take in the view and take a break. Note that it is often very windy and cold up top, regardless what time of year. Also pack your bear spray! 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND!
Hiked from Wapiti Lake to Mist Pass.
Pros: amazing thermal features, no mans land, wildlife, scenery
Cons: not much shade, trail can be hard to follow in the valleys, especially difficult to follow trail across pelican valley to mist lake trail
Beautiful hike. Hiked from Heart Lake down to South Entrance. The section from HL to Sheridan Lake is amongst the most beautiful parts of the park. Lots of bear sign, saw one grizzly on South Boundary trail n ar the scree field. Don't pass up this hike even though the guide book says it isn't that great.
This trail takes you to the Shadow Lake and the North Side of the Cirque of the Towers and the views are stunning. Can climb up the very steep Texas Pass and see the Cirque of the Towers from the south, even more amazing and return back to the Big Sandy trail-head
The Hike up this trails is amazing. The view of Squaretop Mountain in the distance near both Green River Lakes and along the beautiful Green River is amazing.I Hiked from the trail-head to the Vista Pass junction this year as part of the Wind River High Route between Green River Lakes and Big Sandy Openings. Hike From Summit Lake to the trail-head on a Big Sandy Openings hike to Green River Lakes year ago.
