Hike to Bradley Lake

Taggart Lake Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Garrett Schmidt

Bradley Lake is very secluded with great views of the Teton mountains along the way, especially on a clear day. You can enjoy in every season!

So the hike starts out at Taggart Lake Trailhead ( 6625') and the highest point on the trail is (7022'). Follow this trail all the way along the stream to your left. You will go through a pretty dense forest for a bit, this area can get wet and muddy depending on the season so equip yourself accordingly. After about a mile of hiking you will reach the point where the trail goes right to Bradley Lake or left to Taggart Lake. My suggestion is to go left and go to Taggart lake first. I mean you are there to hike so go and enjoy all the sights on this trail. After you have spent time at Taggart Lake follow the trail around to Bradley Lake. The hike up to Bradley lake is not as easy as the first couple miles to Taggart, but is worth the trek up! Take your time and enjoy the views along the way. After you have enjoyed your time at Bradley Lake turn around and head back down the same trail you came in on, except on the way back you will want to veer left to see the other part of the trail you missed on the way up. This area really opens up to get a great view of the Tetons.

Great Hike!

We did the loop just as described, and it was a really nice little hike! The trail is pretty crowded at the beginning, but the section between Taggart and Bradley offered a bit more solitude. It seemed like most people were just headed straight to Bradley, which is a shame since both are so close and equally beautiful!
