Check-in: 4PM Saturday   Departure the following Saturday is after a leisurely breakfast. 

The Ranch is accessed by gravel road from Dubois or Pinedale. These roads are usually navigable by conventional passenger car, however we highly recommend a 4WD vehicle, primarily for the additional clearance. Because of prevailing car rental and air ticket rates, renting a car in Salt Lake City and driving is sometimes considerably cheaper than flying to Jackson and driving from there. The drive from Salt Lake City is about 285 miles and takes about 5 hours; from Jackson it’s about 100 miles and takes about 2 ½ hours.

The fastest and perhaps most interesting way to get to the Ranch is by bush plane from the Jackson Airport directly onto our airstrip. Mark Doerr of “Precision Aviation” at (208) 308-1852,, may be able to fly you in and out for a reasonable fee. Please inquire.
