Hiking in Jackson Hole
If you were to walk due east from the ranch's lodge, you would not encounter a road for four or five days. This pristine wilderness has trails for an afternoon walk and endless terrain for the more adventurous traveler.
Bring your hiking boots and a day pack in which to stow a bottle of water and an elegant “brown bag” lunch prepared in the kitchen. There are literally thousands of marked trails in Jackson Hole, many within a few minutes of the ranch. If you can pull yourself away from the corral or spa, consider a hike through Cascade Canyon, which winds beside and behind the Grand Teton. Or navigate your own route through ponds where moose will be bobbing for bottom weeds, their racks covered in water lilies.
Old-time Jackson natives complain that a single lifetime isn't enough to explore the nooks and crannies of the valley. But you can make a good start during your stay at Lost Creek.
