“Follow the forested shore of Leigh Lake to two small lakes as Mount Moran towers ominously above.”— Tom Robson
The views of the valley are better from Trapper Lake, but the views of the mountains are superior from Bearpaw - be sure to hit both!
Once you're at the northern tip of Leigh Lake, head west and take your pick of which lake to enjoy: Bearpaw or Trapper. Trapper Lake provides stunning views of the Jackson Hole Valley and is less-trafficked, but Bearpaw has better views of the mountains... If you're torn on which to experience, just do both! Once you've had your fill of lakefront views, head back to the Leigh Lake Trailhead.
Osprey, eagles, sandhill cranes, and other waterfowl are easy to spot in this area.
