For more information on the ranch including maps click here
#4 Eat at Signal mountain lodge, then drive the summit
#5 Take a dip in "hippie Hot Springs"
To get there:
1. Head south from the town of Jackson until you reach Hoback Junction.
2. Take the second exit at the roundabout heading East towards Pinedale
3. Go about eleven miles and then turn left when you see the sign for Granite Hot Springs
4. Follow the dirt road about 9 miles until you see Granite Falls, park there and head to the falls. Cross the creek at the base of the falls to get to the hot springs.
If you prefer something a little more developed, a mile up the road is Granite Hot Springs. That is a developed pool with bathrooms and a small snack bar. There is a $6.00 fee to swim at these springs.
Tip: This is better in late summer when the water levels in the creek are lower, making it easier to cross.
#6 Watch a Sunset or Sunrise at Schwabacher's Landing
#7 take a trip to brook's lake
Tip: If you are going in early summer/spring, bring the mosquito repellant. I have never encountered mosquitoes as ferocious as those at Brooks Lake.
#8 Watch the Sunrise then Kayak or Canoe at oxbow bend
Tip: If you don't have your own Canoe or Kayak, Dornans down in Moose will allow you to rent them and transport them up to the Bend.
