“Easy Hiking Area”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is a great area to hike. Not too difficult. Nice building. Bathrooms. Great trails. Nice short walk to a whitewater area that is nice to just sit, listen, and enjoy or continue hiking on to other areas.

“Absolutely Beautiful!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Wow, what a great experience. My family came for the Lake Phelps hike of 7 miles. There was convenient parking, Rangers to assist as you pulled in and they provided a map to the trails as well. The area is beautiful, has very nice bathrooms with a counter to change infants if needed and the area is very clean. Very close to Teton Village, there is a fee to drive into the GTNP (good for a week though).

“Gorgeous Property”
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”
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.
