The trails at Rockefeller are very well maintained and the decks surrounded by the river make a great photo op or place to just enjoy nature. Lovely bridge over the cascading river. The vegetation is lovely and varied. We went early in the morning hoping to see wildlife but we struck out... only saw a little frog and a few... More

Loved the preserve, went on the 9:00 hike with the ranger down to the lake. She was excellent, a beautiful easy to do trail, with a woodlands trail heading back. Go early, When we returned parking became a problem

A beautiful hike. Thanks to the Rockefeller family for giving this piece of land to the National Parks. You hike to a lake and pass streams of water. Great for the whole family. Not too strenuous.

It is a moderate hike to get to the lake but once you get there, it is worth the view. Nice scenery along the way but make sure you go one trail on the way to the lake and the other on the way back. Parking is limited to 55 spaces and it is a bit tricky to get out... More

An easy, picturesque hike in Teton National Park. A dip in the clear, chilly water of Phelps Lake is the perfect reward on a hot day. Gorgeous setting.

This was a very nice hike/walk along a swift moving creek. Get there early as the parking spaces are limited.
