The Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve sits in the southern part of the park, encapsulating beautiful and lesser-traveled backcountry. For a quick taste of the area’s trails, loop around peak-ringed Phelps Lake: You’ll get views of the mouth of Death Canyon, 10,551-foot Albright Peak, and 11,241-foot Prospectors Mountain, plus a bounty of summer wildflowers and a chance to see bears and moose. Hike around the eastern shore first for the best mountain-lake vistas, passing a few sandy beach rest stops, then swing around to the western shore to stroll through blooming fireweed, asters, and coneflower. The trail also connects to the ominously named Death Canyon, another lovely chasm leading into the Teton high country.
