Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled a very specific part of the female body. Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.

my friend and I hiked this on 9/23 which was the beginning of snowfall. There were plenty of parking at the trailhead at around 9:40AM. Once we started to get on the unmaintained trail, we started to see snow on the grounds. There was lots of snow as you go higher on the boulders. It took us almost 4 hours to get to the lake because it was hard to follow footsteps since there was fresh snow in most areas but just go all the way to the end until you hear water..that's the water coming down from Delta. We went through the trees instead of the boulders because we didn't see the "second field of boulders " until later. Since there was so much snow, it was hard to gauge if there are cracks in between boulders so we did fall into cracks many many times. Trekking poles and gaiters are highly recommended to help with this. we only hungout for 15 minutes or so at the lake as it was snowing a lot and our feet were soaked. The snow did go up to thigh high at some points. We slipped a lot on our way down...but it took us about 2 hours going down. Unfortunately, the Tetons were covered by the clouds and lake was frozen but it was still very MAGICAL! will definitely have to come back when it isn't snowing

It's a nice comfortable scenic hike. You can cover Taggart and Bradley together with a total of 5 miles. You get better views at Taggart lake though.

22 Sep it was getting snowy to the point where I turned back because I wasn't properly equipped. Looks like there was more snow last night so snowy for the 23rd. Lots of berries on the slopes so watch out for bears and make sure to carry spray and bells.

loved it! did this trail up to the cabin in Aug, it was an amazing day!

We took the short hike of just to the lake and back .. A nice hike with plenty to see .

We took the ferry and then hiked all the way to where it ends. It was absolutely gorgeous! We saw three bull moose munching on plants by the river! This trail will probably be a bit strenuous for the inexperienced hiker, mainly due to the length and incline at the beginning.
