Extremely private and secluded historical ranch in busy national park.Easy five minute walk to reach ranchDuration: 15 minutes-3 hours

The Lucas Fabian Ranch is a place you will not find on any map of the park, but it is one of my absolute favorite places to go for peace and quiet. To get there, drive toward Jenny Lake from the town of Moose. About four miles in, you will pass the Alpine Climber's Ranch and the Teton Glacier turnout. Almost immediately after the turnout, on your left, you will see a service road with a gate blocking it. In front of the gate there is a small unpaved parking lot. Keep your eye out because it is very easy to miss. Park there and walk down the service road. About 100 feet in you will find a small bridge crossing Cottonwood Creek. Immediately after crossing the creek, you will come to the ranch.

The Lucas Fabian is extremely picturesque and unknown. In all of my trips here, I have only come across another person once, even in the height of summer. With the calming sound of the creek in the background, the Lucas-Fabian Ranch is the ideal place for a picnic, or to spend an afternoon painting or reading.
