It was amazing you hike up the mountain to a giant lake that had jaw dropping scenery, and the water felt great.

Coming back on Cache Creek trail/road make a bit shorter loop with views of the mountains.

Nice easy hike, a little crowded

Definitely moderate trail. But I would totally recommend hitting the moose pond as a bonus. We saw 3 moose on our journey and it was a spectacular falls at the end! Worth the steep grade up and very quick hike out going down hill.

Easy and nice view from the mountains. I'd suggest doing that along with amphitheater and delta lake. Try to be at the lake in the morning to not have the sun in the wrong direction

Better than doing the full lake, but you can take a ferry there and do the canyon instead.

Easy and scenic!!

Easy trail and pretty falls. I’m giving it 5 stars because I had such an incredible bear sighting!!!

Excellent trail that is relatively easy. Some elevation gain, but it is very gradual. The falls and wildlife are beautiful and you can take the boat across and back if you want to make it a shorter ride. Two black bear sightings were seen on this trail! Very exciting, but keep your distance because these guys did not react at all to seeing humans.

Absolutely gorgeous. Crowds annoying at the beginning and end but they thinned out near the lake.

There was a beautiful meadow of wildflowers and all around there was lush greenery. Got to see 5 bears, a beaver, a white tailed deer, a blue jay, and even heard woodpeckers in the distance! The lake was a gorgeous green color, reflecting all the trees and surrounding mountains.

We did the Bradley and Taggart Lake trail counterclockwise like some reviews had suggested and it was great as there were constantly stunning views of the Tetons and, while there was some uphill hiking, none of it was overly strenuous. If you get there relatively early you also get the benefit of the trail not being very crowded like it is later in the afternoon. This is definitely a good hike if you only have a day to spend in the park.

I also did part of the Valley Trail from where it meets at Bradley lake until just after the junction between the Garnet Canyon and Amphitheater Lake trails. It is a much more difficult trait with a lot of elevation gain, but there were a lot of incredible views of the lakes and the park valley. Unfortunately, I was running low on time and water and had to turn around before reaching Amphitheater Lake, but would love to come back and try it again.

Beautiful! We hiked all the way around the lake and then included this quick little detour. So glad we did!

We had a great time, walked there and got ferry back as kids were fading from heat at that point. Falls are beautiful.

Fun little trail with a lot of friendly people. Well worth the time spent with the family in a really beautiful place.

Skipped the boat and hiked from Leigh lake area adding 2 miles each way onto this short uphill hike to the falls. It was early evening and raining as I started this jaunt so the trail was empty and the little guys (marmot etc...) knew it as they were everywhere. Passing an osprey nest (educated guess) with a visible baby sitting atop was a cool extra to the storm cloud backdrop of the Tetons. After the quick uphill to the falls I was rewarded with a sudden halt to the rain and some beautiful late evening sunshine to accompany a breathtaking view of the falls. Definitely continue onward to lower inspiration point (all trails continuing upward were closed) for a view of the valley below. I loved this hike as it allows all levels of hikers to reach the finish line. You can take the boat trip and make the trip just over 1.5 miles or walk around Jenny lake and add a few extra miles (dealers choice).

Nice walk around Jenny lake with pretty falls. Saw a few chi monks and a marmot.

Got here at 5:30 a.m. to start my hike. Walked Bradley and Taggart trail, didn't see another person until reaching the trail head. Very peaceful, seen a couple of mule deer, one had a fawn!

Easy hike. 50s and raining when we went. In late May there was snow on the trail in only a few locations. Pretty quiet this time of year. We only saw three other groups of people over the ~5 miles. Great views of Taggert and Bradley lakes.

One of the best parts of going this time of year was the melting snow made the streams more like rapids.

The loop part of this map is under construction, so I was a little disappointed by that. the second half walks right along the river :( The trail was a little too crowded for my taste as well. Parking seemed like an issue around noon when I finished

Great hike and beautiful full waterfall in mid-June. Busy trail, but everyone was considerate.

Wonderful hike! We did the Bradley-Taggert Trail (counterclockwise was a perfect recommendation!) and it was beautiful. Wildflowers galore, overlooks, forests, meadows, lakes and streams. Few people due to threat of rain made it more peaceful. Highly recommended!!!

The hike gave us a great view of Jenny lake. We were able to see some wildlife including a small moose right off the trail. There is an option to take a boat back so you don’t have to hike both ways if you get tired. The waterfall was super powerful. However, it’s hard to capture a true photo of how big it is since you can’t get right up next to it. Worth the hike for sure!

Relatively easy hike with some climbing, but amazing alpine views and greenery resembling a rustic garden. The Jenny Lake Visitor Center is under construction, so be prepared for limited parking and dirty port-a-potties. We like hiked around the lake to the falls and took the boat back. The falls and cascades were flowing heavy in early June, resulting in some magical views. The boat was a nice reward after a hot afternoon of hiking, but it wasn’t cheap for a family of four. We were hoping to see a moose on our trip and we found one on this hike!

We hiked around the lake and up to the falls! It was so pretty! Not too hard!

very nice hike. with beautiful lake ! beach like areas. You can get there from tagger lake trail head. or from lupene meadows which is watch went.

A short hike with a great reward of the powerful falls - just be sure to not stop before you actually get the best view of the falls. The best view is “hidden” as the trail seems to end at the bridge that continues on to lower inspiration point. Turn left prior to the bridge and go beyond the big boulder to a gorgeous canopy of trees, sitting area, and a full length view of the falls.

This trail is a must if you are visiting the Tetons. We hiked it on a Sunday and it was busy but didn't bother us (early June). To avoid the crowds recommend you take the last boat over at just before 4 and then hike back (2 miles). The boat stops running at 4.
