This is a great hike for seeing wildlife, especially moose. I recommend continuing past Moose Meadows to Moose Creek Falls and Moose Lake as described. You can even make a long loop by climbing a natural ramp on the south side of Moose Lake, following the shelf north to the Game Creek Trail, following that east to the Teton Crest Trail, and following that south to where a cutoff trail will drop you back down to Moose Creek below the lake.
