This was one of my favorite hikes while visiting the Grand Tetons area. Parking is very limited (and controlled by the park rangers) so trails are not crowded and you can really enjoy the experience. The lake creek trail was just beautiful - touches all the senses. The lake view when you arrive is stunning. A very easy loop trail.... More

Wow... What an amazing place to visit! It was a highlight to our trip to Yellowstone and Teton National Park. This is a special place for quiet walks in nature and to appreciate the local environment. What a wonderful gift and legacy from the Rockefeller family. Five star!!!!!

I visited the week with a friend, I've been here a few times in the past. It is like a library, no gift shop. Very informative. We started up one of the trails & were rewarded with seeing a black bear with 3 cubs. Parking is limited but well with the wait to visit the area.

If you want a simple, easy, short, but very beautiful hike, go to LRP. You can add on to your hike to make it longer, or just go a short way, so it appeals to many different people. The only negative is that parking is not plenteous, and it is strictly regulated by the rangers. You have to line up... More

Do yourself a favor and drive down Moose-Wilson Road. We saw a moose, a black bear (20 feet from the road,) and two elk. Be sure to stop along the way for amazing photographs.

This is an approximately 3.5 mile hike with less than 1000 feet increase in elevation. We do this hike multiple times each time we come to JH. The view up at Phelps Lake is gorgeous. You sometimes have to wait up to an hour for parking but honestly, it is so worth it! My 84 year old mother has been... More

Glorious late summer day. Arrived at 11am and waited about 40min. for a parking spot. yes as you will have seen in many previous reviews that if you do not get their early you will wait for a spot to open. We just waited and took in the beauty of the area and were regaled with great stories and tips... More

We hiked counter-clockwise around Phelps Lake and into the Death Canyon. It was gorgeous. We think it was about 9 miles.

It is a great reserve, a legacy of a soulful and generous man with wisdom and money. Enjoy an easy 1.5 hr walk to Phelps lake and back (you can also add the walk around the lake if time and strength permits, bring food and drink then). There is a free walk with a ranger at 9:30 am (check if... More

We just wanted to take a walk in the woods & someone recommended one of the hikes offered at this Preserve. Looking for a restroom, we wandered into the visitors center. What a gift! It is filed with beauty, education, and a sense of peace the only nature brings. I cannot say enough about the few minutes we had there.... More
