Hike Summary: Both Taggart Lake (6,902 feet) and Bradley Lake (7,022 feet) were named for members of the Hayden Survey party of 1872. Each was formed by glaciers flowing from the Teton Range. A glacier from Avalanche Canyon filled Taggart Lake and a glacier from Garnet Canyon filled Bradley Lake. The hike to each lake is fairly easy, and both have mature forests of lodgepole pine, Engelmann spruce, and alpine fir. The lakes also have abundant wildlife and we nearly walked into a large bull moose on our hike. This trail is located a short distance from Jackson, Wyoming and is suitable for both day and overnight hikers.
