Steep incline hike but worth the views once you get to the lake. Views along the way are beautiful as well.

Very scenic and rewarding hike. I went to Bradley Lake first then Taggart Lake on the way down, seemed to be the way to do it, the switchbacks where downhill this way. Spotted a momma moose and her baby, thankfully on the other side of the rapids. People said that there were bears in the area, didn't see them though.

Very scenic hike, not too difficult. I spotted three small grizzlies about a half mile from Bradley lake and a fourth larger one on the shore at the lake!

Great Hike. Went to Bradley first and then looped down to Taggart. There is a bit of up and down the entire way, so you feel like you're working (yet it's "not hard.") Just be mindful if you have some single digits with you. It's still 5mi+. Streams follow the trail from time to time. Enjoy!

Very easy hike! Beautiful as well. We did the Taggart to Bradley Lake loop with the babies on our backs with no problem. I would suggest going early to beat the crowd since it can get very busy.

Lovely hike with great views of the two lakes, the Tetons beyond, and back into the valley. Note that the southern part of the Bradley Lake lopped is currently closed. I hiked this on a sunny day and went counter-clockwise, so hit Bradley Lake first, continued around it, climbed up a ridge (I didn't find it long or especially hard climb) then down to Bradley Lake and back the northern leg to trail juncture and parking lot. Although it is a popular trail, the only congestion is really at the lake sides. If you have time to wander a bit around the lakes you shoul find a quiet spot for a break.

For the one day I had at Grand Teton, and hiking on my own with DH as my taxi service, this was seemed like the top choice for a good workout with great views. Most other trails are either easy, or the strenuous ones take more hours than I had.
