Great trail but the addition of Bradley lake was unnecessary. Saw a huge moose! Pretty lake views with the Tetons in the background.

Beautiful hike despite the cloudy weather. There is gradual elevation and the trail is well maintained. Could finish the loop in 1.5 hrs at a normal pace. Highly recommend it!

Great hike... great trail. It is easy if you take the trail to the right after you leave the parking lot. If you want a more strenuous uphill go off to the left. Awesome views of the Tetons. One of the most popular trails so get here early!

Great for the early morning when there are few people on the trail and the air is crisp. Lots of diverse scenery (forest, fields, lake, views of the mountains).

Beautiful hike and fairly easy. Trail is pretty narrow at times and not a lot of hikers wearing masks. Not too smokey, fair amount of shade.

Amazing views of the Tetons no matter whether you go counterclockwise (which we did) or clockwise. Fall foliage is turning. Lake is beautiful. Not that hard of a hike. Some creek views. Fairly crowded today.

Perfect short hike! This morning around 9AM even though the lot was full, the lake and trail did not seem crowded. Absolutely still and serene - fantastic views. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys
