“With each rocky twist and turn, this mountain paradise slowly opens up and reveals everything you’d expect; stunning views up, down and all around”.
Getting to Flat Creek Ranch
Our Wilderness Road
Getting here is just difficult enough to insure complete privacy for your stay. You will experience spectacular Grand Teton views as you drive through the National Elk Refuge. Then the road turns rougher as you climb on a rocky National Forest Service jeep track through pine forest to the ranch.
Because of our bumpy road, we discourage side trips to Jackson during your stay.
Your options for getting to and from the ranch:
Ride with us in a ranch-owned Chevy Suburban between the ranch and Jackson (or the Jackson Hole Airport). We run free shuttles to and from town at our normal changeover times on Mondays and Fridays.
Hike part of the way. Ride in a ranch vehicle most of the way to the ranch then hike the most scenic (and bumpiest) section of the jeep trail while we transport your baggage. It takes 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on where you start hiking.
Drive yourself to and from Jackson. (This requires a four-wheel drive, high-clearance vehicle and a lot of patience.)
Planning Your Trip
If you are traveling by air, you might want to consider flying into Jackson Hole Airport a day or more ahead of your arrival at the ranch and flying out a day or more after you leave the ranch. There’s a lot to do in and around Jackson Hole. And it may be easier to deal with the occasional missed flight or delayed bag if you are staying the first night at somewhere convenient in the town of Jackson. We’d be glad to recommend places to stay.
If you decide to fly in and come directly to the ranch, please try to choose one of the many flights that arrive between noon and 4 PM. If you arrive before noon, you may have to wait at the airport until our driver can get down from the ranch. If your flight arrives after 4 PM, we can’t guarantee we can get you to the ranch until the following morning.
If you decide to fly home on the same day you leave the ranch, please try to pick one of the many flights that leave between noon and 4 PM. If you book an early morning flight, we’ll get you there, but you’ll miss breakfast and a morning of activities. If you book a late afternoon flight, we’ll drive you to town after an early lunch and have your bags stored while you check out the town of Jackson for a few hours. Then you’ll have to get to the airport on your own by hiring a taxi.
If you are planning to drive to the ranch in your own high-clearance vehicle, ask us to send you detailed driving directions. Our check-in time is 3 PM.
