Hiked this trail with my girlfriend on Sept 7th. I am 64 yrs young, but live at sea level (St. Pete,FL)
the first 3-4 miles not so bad, but once you leave the maintained trail it gets much tougher.
That combined with the lack of oxygen made me consider quitting several times. Luckily for me,
my girlfriend is younger and in better hiking shape, so I toughed it out. It was the best pay-off to a hike
that I have ever experienced. The view was spectacular. The sun on the lake and the reflection of the sky made it seem that you were in a painting. As with many places we have been, none of the pictures, as beautiful as they are, can quite hold up to being there. It was very hard to leave.

did the hike 4th of july weekend. amazing hike!! worth the switchbacks and boulder field scramble. the view at the top was amazing. the lake was so cool! take plenty of water! we all depleted our water on the way up and refilled with our filters at the lake. we arrived early but not early enough and had to park further out. about 10 miles up and back to the car. we did see a mom and cub on our way up. they wandered off into the field away from us so definitely bring bear spray, never know!

Beautiful. May take longer than you think to complete the hike. Route-finding can be difficult in the boulder section and may not be appropriate for children, older folks, or disabled. A stunning annual run for us with access to the Middle/Grand saddle.

Beautiful hike—very good trail for a little sweat and great views.

Nice hike- we did it clockwise and enjoyed great views the whole time.

phenomenal hike with great views. This hike leans towards the more difficult side. It took us around 5 and a half hours for the entire trip.
Plan on taking a lot of water or at least water filters to restock on water at the lake itself.

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.

We hiked this 10-20-18 1:20pm - 5:00pm and it was absolutely beautiful. We arrived to Bradley Lake around 3pm and the sun was hitting the lake so beautifully making an awesome reflection on the lake. I would rate the hike as easy and not heavily trafficked this time of the year. We did not see any wild animals. Highly recommended, and we even liked it better than Jenny Lake Hike, although BOTH are BREATHTAKING!

Lovely views above Phelps Lake. Take the time to go beyond Patrol Cabin as the canyon opens out and you get tremendous views. There was a light covering of snow in the Canyon which made it all the more spectacular. The aspens were at their best

this is one of my favorite hikes. Theres stunning views even just a mile or two in. My family hikes here every year. You can go inside the windcave, but be cautious, there are currents inside the cave where you can't tell how deep they are, make sure you stay out of the water as much as you can, and take a reliable headlamp.

Great hike suitable for the family.

Very icy conditions with considerable snowfall covering the large boulders. Mentally and physically challenging! Make it to the top and you’ll be greeted with a spectacular view.

After doing shorter hikes in Yellowstone we decided to push ourselves to do something longer than 2 miles. So glad we did. Beautiful views of the lake and the mountains.

Hiked this Oct 14. Snow at Patrol Cabin and into the canyon. Tough hike if you are just acclimating to the elevation-it’s a long, uphill trek to the cabin from Phelps Lake. We did go into the canyon a bit, but there was about 6” of snow so we didn’t go too far. The switchbacks are not super steep, just constant uphill for a while. Beautiful scenery, although most of the aspens had lost their leaves.

Incredible payoff at the end. Easily one of my top 3 hikes ever.

Just did this oct 14. got within 100m from the top, waist deep snow and after hours of making fresh tracks we called it! Past the junction there was no way to find a trail. With it wind chill we think it was about zero degrees. If you're going to go later this season I suggest gaiters and snowshoes!

Absolutely a unique hike and well worth the effort to get to the top. Views are unparalleled.

We started out on this trail at 8:30 am and took us 4 1/2 hours to do the entire 7 miles with many stops. Beautiful views and beautiful trail. Topography changes and make the hike interesting Take bear spray for safety. Views of Taggart lake are better than Bradley lake. The Tetons are Gorgeous on this hike

Traveled on 10/12/18. Trails were pretty moderate until the boulder fields. Boulders were covered with several inches of snow which made it even more challenging. Cairns were extremely helpful in guiding. We were the first to travel this morning, so we actually followed a wolf’s footprints all the way to the top. Views were incredible, would love to try again when the lake is not frozen.

Very beautiful around the lake!

Our group did this hike on 10-5-18 right after an early snowfall. The first half of the trail was easy going, but as we approached the first large tree fall and entered the boulder fields, the ground became very muddy. While it was a little slow going through the boulders, the most difficult part was climbing the muddy trail at the end toward the lake. I highly recommend yak tracks and trekking poles to navigate this section if hiking in similar conditions. I’m not sure I’d attempt this hike with any more snowfall unless footwear is designed for the ice, mud, and/or snow. With that said, the lake was absolutely glorious and breathtaking. It was worth every step up and back to see it. It’s cold at the top, so bring layers to allow an enjoyable stay.

Fabulous hike with two extraordinary lakes. Just before we crossed the bridge back towards the parking area, a mama bear and three cubs came up the trail. We backed up to give her room, she came up a little our way to make sure we stayed back, and then they all crossed over into the woods. Even on a very busy Saturday stay cautious!

Took 2 hours to the lake edge, about the same going down. Hardest part was navigating the rock / boulder fields, but, after reading several other more detailed posts from AllTrails, it was not bad. The rock piles left by other hikers was most helpful!

We managed to do this trail in 4 hours between rain showers. The canyon is wonderful and great fall colors. No sign of bears but it is prime territory’s I tale precautions

Hike was tough, especially the steep bolder field to get to the lake. The view of the lake/tetons was worth it but definitely difficult.

So gorgeous!!!! Loved the hike!
