Absolutely beautiful trail! We kept going to Bradley lake, but Taggart Lake was so much better. After hiking over and past gorgeous flowing streams, we made it to this spectacular lake. The water was crystal clear and there was a huge boulder on which to sit. We spent time with our feet in the water, which our kids (11 and 8) loved! This trail is a must see.

This was a beautiful hike and we had prefect weather for it. I assume it is rated hard for the sections that are uphill, but they really weren't bad compared to other difficult hikes we have done. Go early because the parking lot was overflowing when we finished our hike at noon. We hiked the large loop up to Bradley Lake. If you have the time and energy head up there for amazing views. Bring bug spray. Mosquitos were annoying on some sections of the hike.

Nice trail. Not hard, moderate

This trail is best done early in the morning as it is the most peaceful. The trail to the lake is mostly uphill, as is the next .5 miles after the lake. But then it's all downhill! The lake is beautiful and so quiet. There's a rock that is perfect for sitting in the sun and taking in the beauty. Can be done in about 2 hrs but allow time for resting if the uphill is hard for you.

Nice trail that we did late May 2017. Fairly easy hike to the lake. And busy. Moderate hike (not busy) when we continued around the lake to Bradley Lake. Ran into snow getting to Bradley but we followed footprints and they got us there.

Not sure why this is rated as hard; I had a pretty easy go of it and I only hike a couple of times a year. Beautiful hike, stunning views.

Did the trail early in the morning. Only way to do it since it does get crowded. Added Bradley Lake to the loop as well. Spoke with a person who saw a large grizzly near Bradley Lake but we never saw it. One section at Bradley Lake still has snow on it and navigation and the footing was tough. Taggart Lake is always better for the views and photography..
