The Flat Creek Ranch (elevation 7,400 feet) is surrounded on all sides by the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Gros Ventre Wilderness Area. Any path you choose to hike — rigorous climb or easy amble — will cross elk trails and meadows brilliant with wildflowers. You can hike the Teton Overlook trail that climbs to a panoramic view of Grand Teton National Park, stretching from the base of the Grand Teton to Jackson Lake. Or, if you’re in the mood for a bigger challenge, you can pursue the old Poachers’ Trail up to the Nose of the Sleeping Indian Mountain (elevation –11,106 feet). Almost as challenging is the shorter South Ridge trail leading up toward Table Mountain. Many gentler trails also crisscross our ranch and the surrounding terrain. We’ll sketch out a route for you to follow on your own. Or if you would prefer, you can join one of our guided hikes. We hold an outfitting permit from the U.S. Forest Service that allows us to provide guided hikes into the wilderness area.
