Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Trip Planner

Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center

The Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve is located four miles south of Moose on the Moose-Wilson Road. The Preserve provides a special opportunity to connect with nature in an environment designed to reduce congestion and provide an opportunity for solitude and reflection. Explore the network of trails leading to Phelps Lake through mature forests and aspen groves. Continue south along the Moose-Wilson Road to reach Teton Village for opportunities to view wildlife. This slow, winding road is closed to RVs and trailers (vehicles over 280 inches in length) and is unpaved for 1.5 miles. As you plan your trip, keep in mind that parking at the Preserve is limited and often full from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Consider carpooling to help alleviate congestion and reduce our environmental footprint. The Preserve remains car-accessible from May 1st-October 31st, and the Center is open from late-May through September.

Pika with a mouth full of grass

Did you know that pikas harvest grasses so they can survive the long cold winter? These small members of the rabbit family do not hibernate, but instead store their harvest as “haystacks” under rocks in the alpine environment.
