Guided Nature Walks
East of Lost Creek Ranch and literally out your cabin’s back door, a vast mountain wilderness crisscrossed by trails awaits you. Guided nature walks leave from the ranch and go into Grand Teton National Park, which borders the ranch.
If you are interested in the main trailheads and hikes in the park, shuttle service can be arranged around onsite programming.
Your week starts with a wagon ride around the historic ranch. Led by our incredible wrangler team, you’ll have the opportunity to meet staff and map out the week’s adventures.
Midweek cocktail wagon ride and kids cookout are a guest favorite!
Fitness Center, Spa & Pool
Imagine reading a book by a pool surrounded by jagged peaks erupting from the earth. Or easing into the rejuvenating hot tub under a starry sky. You’ll never experience another pool with a Teton view like this. The fitness center offers a weight room, aerobic equipment, steam room and sauna.
By The Numbers
For starters, our idyllic summer weather tends to be dry and cool with highs in the 70s and 80s most days. Afternoon rain showers frequent the valley, but are usually gone in two flicks of a horse’s tail. Our valley has recorded snowfall on every calendar day of the year, so it’s good to come prepared for colder weather, too. Especially at night and early morning, which often demand a sweater.
