Exceptionally scenic. Secluded historic dude ranch in Grand Teton National Park. Great family friendly outing.

This ranch is not very well known at all, even by those who have lived in the area for years, but it's definitely worth the visit. It's giant red barn against the backdrop of the Tetons, which is any photographer's dream and trumps the more famous Mormon Row with its beauty.

To get there, park at the parking lot for the Chapel of the Transfiguration/Menor's Ferry. Walk towards Menor's Ferry and you will come across a dirt road almost immediately. Turn left and follow the road for about fifteen minutes. Partway there, you will come across a gate in the road, which is not locked, so feel free to open it and go through, or take the path around. It is a beautiful walk with lots of wildlife to be seen.

This old dude ranch is right on the Snake River, with lots of buildings to explore and photograph. The ponds around the ranch are prime moose habitat and very large trout lurk in the waters here. Many of the Grand Teton Park Rangers enjoy riding bikes or horses back here, and chances are if you run into anyone at the 4 Lazy F, they will be Park Service.

If the gate is closed, please leave it. Sometimes people do stay at Four Lazy F, and I'm sure they would respect their privacy. If it is open, by all means enjoy!

No joke about the large trout...they are there.
