The effort-to-reward ratio is stacked in your favor on this loop to a pair of super-scenic backcountry lakes: Views of major peaks like Grand Teton, Middle Teton, Teewinot, and Mount Owen await almost from the start, and the peaks look even more impressive rising behind the green-blue lake waters. Head straight for Bradley Lake, passing through a conifer-aspen forest on the way. Turn southwest on the Valley Trail to drop down to Taggart Lake. Both are fine places to unpack a picnic and stay awhile. Finish by hiking another 1.5 miles back on the Taggart Lake Trail.
