Great bathrooms, convenient parking and lovely trails with gorgeous whitewater rivers. It was clean, neat and well cared for. We enjoyed the experience at the Preserve.

“Gorgeous Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Beautiful area that has really been returned to nature. We got there around 8:30 am and were able to find parking easily. Hiked up to Phelps lake and enjoyed the beautiful views and helpful park rangers that explained the history of the preserve. Beautiful visitors center, clean bathrooms (near entrance and Phelps lake) and well kept trails. A must see.

“Don't miss the outstanding area and center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We hiked to Phelps lake and hung out and enjoyed the beauty of it all. A lot of different trails to hike including hiking around the lake. The center has some unique things to see. The only downside was the parking. You have to wait until you have a space to park. We waited around forty minutes, but it didn't damper our visit. Don't miss this place if in the area.

“Scenic hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We did an early morning hike to Phelps Lake. Once we got there, there was a bench where we could enjoy the fabulous view and have some quiet time in what is a very busy national park. After returning to the parking area, the visitor center was open. I showed the ranger there a photo that I had taken and she identified it immediately what I thought was some sort of nest but turned out to be a type of fungus on a tree. The rest rooms near the lake were the nicest ones we saw in the park that were not part of a visitor center.

“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.
