“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Get there early. Parking lot can fill up. Great hike from the nature preserve-- easy for families. Along the Wilson Moose road which is a great spot to see some animals really close.

“Excellent hiking a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is situated in the Grand Teton National Park. Around the Phelps Lake area. Parking at the reserve is limited so plan to visit early in morning or after 4 pm. There is a visitor center there with facilities. When we pulled in the lot, a ranger met us, gave us a detailed trail map and answered all our questions. There are 4 main trails. We hiked the Lake Creek-Woodland loop to Phelps Lake. An easy hike a little over 3 miles. We returned by the Lake Creek trail. It parallels the Lake Creek a crystal clear rushing mountain stream. The lake itself is pristine surrounded by the majestic Tetons. Plan an hour and a half at least.
