Those looking for a more secluded hike will enjoy looping Two Ocean Lake. Leaving from the Two Ocean Lake Trailhead, hikers can head around the lakeshore for views of the Teton Range. In early to mid-summer, wildflowers populate the area, brightening up the landscape and making for stunning views. Don’t forget the bug spray! Due to the wet, marshy nature of the landscape, Two Ocean Lake is a popular area for mosquitos.
