Laurance Rockefeller Preserve
Ranked #3 of 84 things to do in Jackson
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 July 2014

As you drive through the Grand Tetons, it's worth it to stop and see this building to understand the contribution Laurance Rockefeller contributed to the Grand Teton National Park, There is a nice hike just past the building. The park rangers were warning hikers about many bear sightings, which made the hike even more exciting. The only drawback is the parking lot is small and easily filled up. If that happens, you wait your turn to park. I felt this wasn't entirely necessary and a lot of people had come a long way and couldn't wait that long to park. We waited about 20 minutes. Other than that, it was a great experience.

This Preserve is regulated by the Park Service and only allows a certain number of vehicles in it. The park ranger makes you line up and wait for a parking spot. We made the mistake of driving all the way up to it, only to wait an hour to park. The walk is decent, but not any better than any other locations.

The trails at Rockefeller are very well maintained and the decks surrounded by the river make a great photo op or place to just enjoy nature. Lovely bridge over the cascading river. The vegetation is lovely and varied. We went early in the morning hoping to see wildlife but we struck out... only saw a little frog and a few squirrels. I would still highly recommend visiting here though.
