  • I've visited this preserve many many times over the years, mostly to hike or run the trail system and to swim. Each time I arrive I'm greeted by an annoying, nosey usually older/ bored retired person....  more »

  • Kid friendly hikes, lots of variety. Phelps Lake is beautiful and the preserve's Visitor Center/Library is quite stunning. It features meditative rooms with seasonal impressions and a surround sound room with bird and wildlife sounds.
  • Nice place to go for a hike in the Tetons. There is usually ample parking and the facilities are fantastic for a national park. One thing to note is that the preserve is in a national park and dogs are not allowed.
  • Very neat placed tucked away of Moose-Wilson road. They have clean restrooms and plenty of parking. The trail is awesome and well worth your time. We found Boreal Chorus frogs and Tiger salamanders in the water feature in the parking lot! Seems like an ideal spot for an early morning hike after cruising for wildlife.
  • Very well maintained, the hike to the lake was beautiful and kid friendly. The parking is a hassle. We had to wait in a line of cars for 45 minutes to get a parking spot.
  • Very quiet place to play. The trail is good to hike, even for the kids. To and back may need 90 mins.
