Easy walk with rewarding vistas.

Well maintained trail with a beautiful view of the Grand Teton Mountain over Taggert Lake. Hiked Aug 2018 with the Denton’s.

I have hiked this trail three separate times. The beautiful aspens, view of the lake and the Tetons make for a tranquil hike. Very heavily trafficked up until the lake, then moderately trafficked continuing on the loop. We went a few days ago and ran into a black bear. We made noise and it ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

This was a great hike for my wife and infant who i carried. It is a very easy hike with amazing views. No real elevation change and a clear trail. We hiked on Thursday August 9th and was easily able to park in the lot at the trail head at 9am. When we left at 1pm and the lot was insanely busy with many people fighting over our spot as we left. The part of the lake near the parking lot was full of people canoeing and on paddle boards, looked like a regular party cove.
The views are amazing and really peak around the camp sites. We went the full 7miles round trip and felt like we wasted the last few miles.

A great morning hike for my son and I. Hit the trail just before 8 and were done well before 10. Great photo spots for family. Morning reflection of Tetons off lake were incredible. Didn’t see any wildlife other than pika.

This was a great trail with a beautiful lake. The only reason I rated it 3 rather than 4 is because I prefer trails with fewer people and this one is HEAVILY trafficked. Going clockwise be prepared for a fairly steep climb up on the backside of the mountain. My 7 year old got a little tired.

Great trail! Started at 8:30 am on a Tuesday in August. Parking was not a problem. Great views throughout the hike. Go in the morning to see the Tetons reflecting in the lake.

I enjoyed the Leigh Lake hike. It was very easy with little elevation change, but lots of stunning views. There was also lots of wildlife along the trail. I almost walked into a black bear eating huckleberries on the side of the trail.

The trail is fairly popular and heavily hiked during the hours of 10am-6pm. The farther you hike the less people there are.

LOVED this trail. Gorgeous views and easy enough for our four year old to do the whole loop. Great family hike.

I would rate this as easy. The meadows are pretty lush with berries and flowers. Highly recommend going slow and observing flowers and fruits growing around the trail with several bees and butterflies flapping . This was our "recovery" hike after delta lake. In the end we just sat by the lake and swam a bit. A lot better than being at the beach. Loved it.

Nice hike. Saw a dancing moose across from the bridge.

Beautiful hike. This trail is not strenuous, but there is a rise in elevation that might be hard for some folks. We had a lovely trek, stopping often to take pictures and to catch our breath.

Lake and mountains are beautiful and you will get great photos. Bring a lunch and enjoy the scenery.

We took this trail yesterday. Descriptions by others are accurate. For what it's worth, my wife and I are both 65, hike about 6 miles most days at home, and found this trail easy, though we'd rate the brief uphill portion closer to moderate.

Trail was peaceful with beautiful views of Grand Teton. A thundershower interrupted us briefly but provided a unique view of the mountains and lake. Although we did not see bears, there was evidence of bear activity a points along the whole trail. The outer trail was left to us with some well deserved private time for hiking honeymooners.

Beautiful trail, my kids 13, 10, and 8 loved this hike. They enjoyed jumping into String lake for a cool off after the hike. The trail does get busy during peak season, so I do recommend going early for a parking spot.

Loved this hike! Views are incredible — you pass by Taggart Lake with amazing reflections of the mountains on the water, but you also get to see wide open plains, woods, the remnants of a fire, and lots of beautiful wildflowers. The trailhead says this is easy to moderate, and there are a few climbs along the trail that are definitely more moderate than easy. This hike gives you a little bit of everything and should definitely be on your list!

A great family hike with incredible views! Don’t let the mileage deter you - it’s an easy walk and very rewarding.

did this with Jenny Lake last week... start early.. just missed seeing a grizzly and moose (seen by people hiking towards us) but saw lots of other wildlife.. would spend a day playing on this lake if had more time in area!

It was a good little hike, pretty easy but the water felt awesome after a hot day! I don't get why people say the water is cold, they have never felt Maine ocean before! But to sum it up, expansive views of the Grand Teton and Middle Teton. Just be aware of wildlife on trail came pretty close to a moose that was territorial, this was an awesome day in the park. Grand Teton NP never disappoints!

It was fun there was a bear at the creek but we scared him off

This is a beautiful trail with great views along the way of the mountains, meadows covered in wildflowers, and the lake views most of the way. It’s not full of solitude unless you go early, but we still had some quiet sections. We also went up the Paintbrush Divide trail up to the lower camping zone and passed some lovely rapids enroute. It gets you a bit more elevation so if you want to keep it easier just stay on the String Lake loop. A really nice day hike!

Take your swimmers for the brave! We loved it. Great, easy loop with refreshing dip at the lake in the middle. Not for the fair hearted. The dip that is, the walk is perfect for kids 9 and 7.

Very easy trail with the beautiful views of the lake. We completed it for 1.5 hours, but stayed lots of times to take photos.

Taggart Lake Trail is a great combination of forest, field, streams and the lake. Great, beautiful vistas of Taggart Lake once you arrive at the lake front. Additionally, we had the pleasure of a Momma Moose and baby cross our trail. Spectacular hike!

My wife and kids loved this hike. Its nice being close to the river and small waterfalls all the way up. Nice lake with some peaks in the background. Its also a very short and easy hike. I think you can find better views at Jenny Lake but Taggart is great.
