Trail shared by Tom Robson

Stunningly beautiful, wide-open trail with the Teton Range right in your face the entire duration.

Family Friendly Accessed directly from the Taggart Lake trailhead, this loop is perfect for a short family outing with opportunities for wildlife and mountain viewing, and awesome lakeside snacking.

Description

Circumnavigate the Taggart Lake area on this wide-open trail as the Teton Range continually dominates your views. The trail winds its way through aspen groves, mountain streams, and fields filled with wildflowers. This trail is especially colorful during the fall months due to the large number of aspens, but it's good any time of year!
