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 ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous. Crowds annoying at the beginning and end but they thinned out near the lake.

There was a beautiful meadow of wildflowers and all around there was lush greenery. Got to see 5 bears, a beaver, a white tailed deer, a blue jay, and even heard woodpeckers in the distance! The lake was a gorgeous green color, reflecting all the trees and surrounding mountains.

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

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

Can get lost around dusk if you don’t track main trail. Alltrails was super accurate even without downloaded map.

beautiful hike. Lots of wildflowers and the lake is stunning with a great view of the Tetons. Good hike for kiddos

Stunning wildflowers and water features! It takes a while to get to the really fun part, but it’s so worth it.

Beautiful! Very easy hike. We came end of July. There’s some mild shade so bring a hat!

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.

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!

started around noon but had a lot of shade. easy walk and great lunch spot next to Heron Pond (big log with amazing view) - would have done the full hermitage loop but had limited time. osprey on swan lake. active bear warning but never saw or heard any...

We did the Bradley and Taggart Lake trail counterclockwise like some reviews had suggested and it was great as there were constantly stunning views of the Tetons and, while there was some uphill hiking, none of it was overly strenuous. If you get there relatively early you also get the benefit of the trail not being very crowded like it is later in the afternoon. This is definitely a good hike if you only have a day to spend in the park.

I also did part of the Valley Trail from where it meets at Bradley lake until just after the junction between the Garnet Canyon and Amphitheater Lake trails. It is a much more difficult trait with a lot of elevation gain, but there were a lot of incredible views of the lakes and the park valley. Unfortunately, I was running low on time and water and had to turn around before reaching Amphitheater Lake, but would love to come back and try it again.

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!

Easy trail. Not very well marked at the end. Had to turn back. Still nice spot for lunch and beautiful views of the Tetons.

Beautiful! We hiked all the way around the lake and then included this quick little detour. So glad we did!

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

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.

We had a great time, walked there and got ferry back as kids were fading from heat at that point. Falls are beautiful.

Fun little trail with a lot of friendly people. Well worth the time spent with the family in a really beautiful place.

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.
