Follow paths that lead you through dry meadows of sagebrush and past forests of spruce, pine, cottonwoods, and aspen, then through wetlands. Explore the shores of Lake Phelps, where you can watch for migratory birds. At the visitor center, you can view exhibits about the flora and fauna of the area, as well as information about Laurence S. Rockefeller, who donated the land that forms the park. The center also offers videos, photographs, and soundscapes of the preserve, as well as a room where you can relax by the fireplace.

Laurance Rockefeller Preserve reviews
We stopped to use the bathrooms (composting, be prepared). What we found was a beautiful easy hike and an educational center that was informative, spacious, and beautiful. We highly recommend that... more »
Great hiking here. It is rated moderate but relatively easy for the entire family. There are also multiple options depending on how long you want to hike. more »
A fantastic find. The rangers are super helpful to find a great day out in the preserve and to tell you about the wildlife in it. There are also a good variety of walks from short (and not steep) to long (up death canyon) and a great visitors centre. A definite recommendation!
Gorgeous, out-of-way nature preserve that is exquisitely maintained with well-groomed walking trails and sturdy boardwalks leading you through thick forests and to exquisite mountain lakes. I highly recommend for a short day hike. It’s close to Jackson Hole Resort and Teton Village.
