A FANTASTIC day hike for those who want to see the try beauty of the Tetons. Hiked this on July 12th for my 50th bday with 2 families age ranged from 14-53. Very well maintained with a nice constant grade. Took 3 hours at a leisurely pace up to the lakes and 2 hours down stopping to look for animals. Saw several including marmots , dear and a baby bear on the lower part. Didn’t start until 10 am so shroud have packed a little more water or a filter to take some for the lake. A single hiking pole also would have helped for the down hill.

Awesome hike!! We had only planned to do Cascade canyon, but when we reached the fork, we didn’t quite feel like that was a good location to turn back, so we decided to head towards the lake. About 0.5 miles after the fork, the trail opened up and the views of the Tetons were just unbelievable. It was one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. There were some campsites in the area, next time i would definitely stay overnight just to enjoy the view for longer. The lake was partly frozen, but we dipped our feet in. On the way out, we saw a grizzly mom and cup on the trail. There were enough people around to be safe. Regardless, I would highly recommend to bring bear spray.

We were disappointed to find that this trail is no longer dog friendly. We only made it about 0.3 tenths of a mile till it became Yellowstone National Park land.

Fabulous hike with great views!!

If you are in GTNP for a few days, there are plenty of better trails to explore. However, it's flat and easy compared to the rest. Taking the trail around Jenny Lake would be a better option.

It was a good little hike, pretty easy but the water felt awesome after a hot day! I don't get why people say the water is cold, they have never felt Maine ocean before! But to sum it up, expansive views of the Grand Teton and Middle Teton. Just be aware of wildlife on trail came pretty close to a moose that was territorial, this was an awesome day in the park. Grand Teton NP never disappoints!

Easy trail. Not very well marked at the end. Had to turn back. Still nice spot for lunch and beautiful views of the Tetons.

Definitely start this hike early, switchbacks can get long and tiresome but entirely worth it. Done this hike 3 times at the ages of 8, 10, and 18 so it can be done at a wide range of ages so long as children are aware and monitored. Saw three bears right away and a cub on the way back down.
First two times were in mid-late June and there was still a fair amount of snow but the last time (mid July) we were able to make it to Amphitheater no problem. Stunning views of the summits from the lake which is also a prime spot to stop for lunch. Good mix between shaded areas, open flower meadow, and rocky terrain. A hike for everyone!

It was fun there was a bear at the creek but we scared him off

Take your swimmers for the brave! We loved it. Great, easy loop with refreshing dip at the lake in the middle. Not for the fair hearted. The dip that is, the walk is perfect for kids 9 and 7.

Took the boat across the lake. Ride was quick but the captain was entertaining and gave us some trail info. Hidden falls was awesome. Disappointed we could not hike to the cascade canyon trail because part of it is closed.

Epic day hike! The elevation gain is a bit over what all trails stares and I won’t lie is it a grinder! But SO worth it. My girlfriend (who just did an iron man a few weeks ago- yes it was PAINFUL keeping up w her) and I did it in 3hr40min w a 30 min lunch break and a slower than normal pace due to me being out of shape. Obviously people were taking more time so you can stretch it out all day! Also all trails neglects to mention that you are at the base of Teton peak.. aka the biggest peak of the Tetons. So if you are wanting to get up in em this is the hike for you! We went July 4th weekend so it was crowded- but there is plenty of trail for all’s. Enjoy!

Excellent hike. Did this one in mid-June 2018. Great views throughout, particularly after the junction. Ran into a lot of snow about 1.5 miles from Lake Solitude, but doable with poles. The lake was mostly frozen over, but the views ...

Very easy trail with the beautiful views of the lake. We completed it for 1.5 hours, but stayed lots of times to take photos.

Taggart Lake Trail is a great combination of forest, field, streams and the lake. Great, beautiful vistas of Taggart Lake once you arrive at the lake front. Additionally, we had the pleasure of a Momma Moose and baby cross our trail. Spectacular hike!

My wife and kids loved this hike. Its nice being close to the river and small waterfalls all the way up. Nice lake with some peaks in the background. Its also a very short and easy hike. I think you can find better views at Jenny Lake but Taggart is great.

We tacked on the hike to Trapper Lake after doing the Leigh Lake trail.

Very easy and mostly flat, although there is a bit more elevation than there was for the Leigh Lake portion. You'll be going through the forest so make sure to bring bug spray and start early in the day if you want to avoid crowds.

A very easy hike with little to no elevation gain that offers some great views of the mountains framed with Leigh Lake in the foreground.

I suggest starting early -- we got to the parking lot at 9am and were able to park right at the trailhead, and encountered very few people on the trail out. Coming back there were significantly more folks on the trail at all times, and the parking lot was at capacity with people circling for spots @1pm.

There are also extensive portions of the trail that go through the forest which is absolutely filled with mosquitoes. Make sure to DEET up; I also sprayed my clothing with permethrin which worked great.

Did this hike on Saturday, and we loved it! You get the perfect combination of a lake trail plus beautiful vistas.

Beautiful views!

Got a little off in the snow because I listened to somebody who said Turn Here. Never do that..... just follow the AllTrails map!!!

We did this hike starting midday and it was great. A little busy but we got a parking spot. The oath cleared as we got higher and farther from the lot. We went up to see both taggart and Bradley lake. It was absolutely beautiful the whole time. I highly recommend it. It was a good workout but also not too steep at any time. Loved it.

Went out of Taggart Lake TH. Took a detour thru burnt wagon gulch. Didn’t make it up to the lakes due to snow, I was sick of snow! Lol I would do this hike again when I am feeling up for it.

Loved this hike! The meadows full of wildflowers were stunning and the smell of evergreen permeates the air. I found the navigation thru the snow more tricky than I anticipated and was thankful for the added stability from my trekking poles. The lake views with the Teton backdrop made every step of the 4 mile uphill climb worthwhile. Of 4 hikes in the hikes, this was far and away the best one and I can't recommend it enough.

Agree with previous review; photos cannot do this trail justice. At the early part of the trail there was a little traffic largely Dads and their young sons with backpacks returning from their overnight camping trip. Route scaled Leigh Lake almost all the way with beautiful miniature beaches to be enjoyed along the way. Also some National Park small camping sites. So definitely a trail to bring a lunch and maybe swim gear to linger a while and enjoy. Beautiful meadow VIsta shortly before Bearpaw Lake completely surrounded by the Tetons. We saw no wildlife although due to the breeze rustling through the trees there was a continuous sense of anticipation. Some lovely flowers and beautifully colored butterfly’s. On the return leg we extended the trail up Painbrush Canyon & the views are certainty true to title. Amazingly! We decentded around String Lake and returned to the trailhead via String Lake parking. All in all 16.2 km

6/26/18. Just finished! Phenomenal hike! Took kids (12 and 9 yo). Our pace was not fast, but climbing over the snow near the top and having lunch at surprise lake made it a great time. The snow is not bad. The views are incredible throughout.

Beautiful!

The path to Inspiration Point that connects to the CascadeCanyon trail is currently closed. The falls are spectacular!! Hike on the trail uphill from there for an amazing overlook!!

A great blend on this easy/relaxing trail - forest, prairies, views, lake, wildlife, Teton views - highly recommend!
