Escape the crowds at Jenny Lake with this scenic, leisurely wander through meadows and regenerating forest to a pair of glacial lakes. The untouched forests around Bradley Lake provide a vivid contrast to the Taggart Lake burn area. Both lakes teem with fish, but sorry, there’s no swimming allowed. In 1985, a lightning-sparked fire burned more than 1000 acres of lodgepole pine forest around Taggart Lake. Among the charred tree trunks, signs of healthy regeneration are rampant: rapidly growing seedlings, lush grasses, and abundant wildflower displays.
