Lunch Tree Hill Loop: Jackson Lake Lodge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Lunch Tree Hill Loop is an interpretive trail that begins at Jackson Lake Lodge. The trail climbs the hill to the north and circles the sagebrush-covered blufftop. Atop the small hill is a magnificent overlook and picnic area with panoramic vistas of the Willow Flats wetlands, Jackson Lake, and the entire Teton Range forming the backdrop.
The overlook is the historic site where, in 1 926, John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his family had lunch with Horace Albright, then superintendent of Yellowstone Park. (Rockefeller was instrumental in creating Grant Teton National Park.) En route to Lunch Tree Hill are interpretive panels about the area’s history, geology, wildlife, and plant life."
