Great place to snowshoe and get lost in the magic and solitude of the Park during winter! Went 11/30 and got a late start, about 2:15pm, so only did a small portion of the trail, out and back.

A super easy scenic trail. Started late but no issues. Spotted a coyote and if course, bison.

Great trail. Started at the taggart lake trailhead and used the Bradley connector trail to get up to the lakes. We camped next to surprise lake. There was about 18 inches to 2 feet of snow for the last mile or so. You can get away with doing it in regular boots but if you wanted to camp this time of year you might want snowshoes. We were glad we had them. Beautiful trail! We were there 11/14/19 to 11/15/19

The hike in is nice and downhill. You are hiking through the valley so there are definitely gorgeous views the whole way and we saw some wildlife too. It was a pretty exhausting trip back up. The end is this cool bridge over Yellowstone River but I probably wouldn’t hike it again.

Hello! I am a 24 year old relatively experienced hiker. However I've never done anything this long or intense before. So I wanted to make a post to ask if any folks would like to join me at some point in summer 2020 for a group trip to the summit. My email is scottcampbell2511@yahoo.com, feel free to email me if you're interested!

Hiked yesterday (11/11/19). Gorgeous & challenging hike. We started from the Taggart parking area (which is different than listed here). We went Taggart Lake to Bradley Lake to Amphitheater, which added a few extra miles (15 total). There was some ice by Taggart and Bradley, light snow on the trail towards Amphitheater after the junction at Valley Trail, and a few inches of snow the last mile or so up to Surprise and Amphitheater. I wish I would’ve brought microspikes, but was able to use my snowshoes towards the top. Took us 8 hours with the extra miles, a hangover, and trail conditions.

We only hiked about half way around the lake in late August. The trail travels thru forested areas and open meadows. We saw on large black bear running full speed across the meadow and up into the tree line before we even reached the lake. Head counterclockwise around the lake back thru dense forested areas, and eventually opening back up to views of the lake. Camped at DR2 a beautiful large site with amazing views of sunset and sunrise over the lake. Small path down to the shore to the lake to filter water. A pit latrine a distance from the campsite.

Absolutely wonderful area for backpacking and photography. You are likely to encounter some other hikers during peak season, but the beauty of the area makes it worthwhile. I did a trip where I stayed at Island Lake for 3 nights and did day hikes in the Titcomb Basin and Indian Basin. Here is a trip report with lots of pictures that describes the route: https://backpackers-review.com/trip-reports/titcomb-basin-wind-river-range/

pretty good trail with an excellent overlook of the falls, hiked during a snowstorm, really makes everything seem surreal

Nice trail. Switchbacks are gradual and there are nice views all the way up. Mom black bears and cubs just off the trail about halfway up. Hiked in Mid September. Warm but chilly at elevation on the top so bring an extra layer. Many great spots to stop and rest in the sun. Was a good test for those is decent hiking shape. A hard hike if you have been laying on the couch. Well worth the effort

Hiked this in October. Gorgeous views and we were the only people in the drainage. While we didn't find a trail due to snow, the orienteering was incredible easy and the Brookies were biting flies. We exited via the hypotenuse.

Magnificent views and just enough elevation gain to feel the altitude. This is a really nice hike. Be aware that it is very rocky in some parts. Bring trekking poles. When we were there today the trail was very icy, but it didn’t detract from the beauty of the hike.

(10/12/19) Amazing hike with beautiful views at the top. Total mileage was just under 11 miles, took about 5 hours. Not technical at all. Some snow and mud on the trails and we were happy we brought our yaktracks for the descent but not a must. Very worth it but would recommend starting early to avoid crowds.

10/08/19: This is a great short steep hike to a pretty little lake. Take time to explore around the lake. Amazing views and saw pair of nesting geese hunkered down before snowstorm that is heading in to area.

Amazing hike today! Highlight of trip was a badger near the junction to Specimen Ridge Trail. Sat and watched her for 15 minutes. Also spotted Bald Eagles, elk and grizzly in the distant. Very snowy and muddy but warmed up to 34 so very comfortable besides wet feet.
