Visit the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center for trip planning information and informative displays; Menor's Ferry Historic District and Mormon Row for a glimpse into the past; and the Murie Ranch for wilderness inspiration. Hike to Taggart, Bradley and Phelps lakes for mountain reflections or into Death Canyon to reach the alpine backcountry.
