Laurance Rockefeller Preserve reviews
This entire area around the Grand Tetons is sight after sight of the Beauty of Creation everywhere. worth your time. more »
We didn't intend to go to the preserve but stop after passing it while out for a drive up Moose Wilson Road. Beautiful scenery and a great hike to Phelps Lake. Next visit we will schedule some time... more »
A fantastic find. The rangers are super helpful to find a great day out in the preserve and to tell you about the wildlife in it. There are also a good variety of walks from short (and not steep) to long (up death canyon) and a great visitors centre. A definite recommendation!
Gorgeous, out-of-way nature preserve that is exquisitely maintained with well-groomed walking trails and sturdy boardwalks leading you through thick forests and to exquisite mountain lakes. I highly recommend for a short day hike. It’s close to Jackson Hole Resort and Teton Village.
