Easy winter hike that showcases some of the best features of Grand Teton National Park. Very fun hike that is full of great photo opportunities for someone looking to see the best of the Tetons in only a few hours. 

Park at the nicely kept Taggart Lake trailhead parking lot and grab your snowshoes for an exciting 2 mile trail hike to the gorgeous frozen Taggart Lake. The lake is situated right in the middle of a view of the Mount Wister, South Teton, and Middle Teton peaks. The trails are all well kept and pretty easy to follow. Watch out for cross-country skiers and be sure to bring an extra pair of socks in-case yours freeze (speaking from experience).

The lake is a perfect spot for excellent photos of the Grand Tetons! Despite being fairly accessible, the trail is relatively desolate and void of tourists visiting the area. This is a great day hike for anyone looking to see the best of the Tetons in only a few hours!
