  • We missed open season by about a week, so we weren't able to see the inside of the visitor center. Even so, this is a fantastic place to start a hike as there are several trails of varying length...  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.
