Route Description for Lake Taminah Hike
Reserved for experienced hikers, the Lake Taminah Trail will challenge even the fittest hikers. Traveling through overgrowth, up scree, and wildlife-abundant woodlands, this trek comes with inherent dangers. As this route is not patrolled, make sure you travel with a group and let others know where you are hiking. One or more persons in your group should carry bear spray and know how to use it. Additionally, as the path is not marked, make sure you download the trail GPS. Note the Grand Teton National Park charges an entrance fee; refer to the NPS website for additional information.
Setting out from the Bradley-Taggart Trailhead, follow the Taggart Lake Loop Trail heading northwestwardly. Follow this route up to the shoreline of the beautiful glacial pool, then merge right onto the Valley Trail. The Valley Trail will lead you to the north shore of the lake, where you will divert off the marked paths into Avalanche Canyon. Using the trail GPS and the hints of a worn path, you will climb along Taggart Creek through the canyon. Admire the scenery, and you will eventually be redirected along the North Fork of Taggart Creek.
This section of the hike requires some careful footing as you ascend the loose screen up the vertiginous path. Passing the Shoshoko Falls, you will soon reach Lake Taminah. Relish in the tranquility and revel in the panoramic views of the Tetons that surround you. When you are through appreciating the marvelous alpine scenery and crystal clear lake, head back down the path the way you came.
