Simply wonderful

Was exactly like the descriptions said. We started out around 09:00 and took 5 hours to get to top. I’m very out of shape now days and refused not to give up until we made it. My wife waited on me lots going up but kept me motivated. The views going up and at the top are good enough motivation.

Great hike, say a lot of wildlife, moose, deer, elk. Fishing wasn't to great, but what can you expect since it's almost November.

We hiked this trail in order to summit Disappointment Peak. Before beginning the last leg of our summit, I took a refreshing (and frigid) swim in Amphitheater Lake. I believe we counted 18 switchbacks. Both lakes were breathtaking!

Great hike with breathtaking views. Saw lots of chipmunks but no bears! Had bear spray just in case. My husband and I really enjoyed this hike.

My first backpacking trip. First 5-6 miles are relatively easy. Last mile is 1000 ft straight up. Nice trail. Nice little hot spring at the top. We had 3 deer with us for a few hours in the camp.

Great hike! Plenty of good views and not too difficult. We didn’t see any, but watch for bears and moose as they are active in the area!

Awesome scenery

Started at lake Taggart. Hiked this the first day of our Tetons and Yellowstone trip. I live in Houston so would have been a good idea to do a warm hike. The hike felt murderous. The altitude really got me. Great views and a nice challenging hike though. Will definitely do it again, this time after a warm up hike

Very beautiful around the lake!

beaufiful,went to the beaver dam, nice.

A great backpacking trail with nice lake views at the top. Be sure to take a water filter if you are planning to camp at the top.

This is one of our all time favorite!!
We did the loop down devils staircase..this is a long day but worth everything mike of it ...FYI we try and hike at least once a week and usually 12t Miles so if you have not been hiking maybe hike a bit before you go ...

the reviews are all correct! we started this hike at the taggart lake TH so added a few miles but was worth it. heard elk after Bradley lake. once on the split up to amphitheatre, we saw a teenage bear. glad we had our spray but did not need to use it. elevation gain was a natural stairmaster so once you have your pace, you're good to go. bring plenty of water and a light lunch to enjoy at either lake. we met a great aspiring dentist- Tina from Seattle. hike on girl!

It took us about 3 hours to go up and 1.5 to come down. Gorgeous lakes at the end that make the entire way up (which is relentlessly uphill) worth the effort. While we didn’t have hiking poles- this trek did convince me I need to buy them. Several people saw a mama bear and her cub, but we missed them.

Great early fall day. This trail is beautiful and very accessible as well. We did the full seven mile loop around the lake without straining. The 700 foot elevation change is mostly in the first mile or so. The rest was just a great walk in the woods. Saw what we believe was a mink, a ptarmigan and even a bear. Fantastic trail!

Beautiful hike! BRING BEAR SPRAY! We were growled at as we switchbacked down the lake. You can read more about it here: https://practicalvagabonds.com/caution-bears-in-the-area/

One of our absolute favorite hikes!! It’s long, but not a hard hike with lots of beautiful views!

Easy warm up trail with a preview from the rangers in the Rockefeller Center. Reminds you of the great legacy the family left for the public to enjoy

Amazing trail and the lake tucked up on the last climbed hill felt like a well deserved view. As others mentioned it is all up and down. Make sure you’ll keep your energy for the way back.

Upper Lake was great.Leg burner for the last quarter mile. Don't look for campsites by the lake but pick your birds nest north of the lake by abandoned outhouse. Plenty of knobs to choose from.

Listened to Billy Joel's greatest hits all the way up to the gorgeous view. I was a little emotional once I reached the summit, it reminded me of how fragile and precious life is. I prepped for this excursion by taking a liter of water, 2 bear spray cans, and my cataract friendly 74 SPF sunglasses. Both cans were emptied upon returning to my Schwinn 10 speed at the trailhead. Being partially blind this was an adventure, but BJ guided my way to the top with his smooth, sweet sweet voice. Bring sunscreen, I looked like a peeled orange for several days post hike.

An “as good as it gets” hike due to the fabulous views along the way. Be sure to get an early start!

The beauty is amazing and I did see a big black bear about 50 yards away.

I’m not sure why they would call this moderate difficulty as it has no vertical movement at all.

The views are a must. Highly recommended.

Great hike, the view at the top is worth the effort. Note that it is a bit over five miles each way, more than the 4.8 on the signs. Well marked and both lakes are worth a visit.

The view at the lake when you first arrive is spectacular, perhaps the best in the park. Hike around the lake is easy. Total trip from parking lot is 7.5 miles. Moderate for distance, easy otherwise.

That was an awesome hike! I'd highly suggest adding Delta lake, which is even nicer than these too. It can be worth climbing up a little more at the end of the trail to have a nice "above" view point of the lake!

Amazing place for a horse ride. Absolutely beautiful!!!!! Not for novice horses or riders.
