National Elk Refuge
The National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole was established in 1912 after the photography of Stephen Leek inspired public interest in preserving a part of the traditional winter range of the area elk population.
Today almost 10,000 elk winter in the refuge, which is located just north of the town of Jackson. The elk begin their migration out of the high meadows in the fall, usually after the first snow storm. They stay in the refuge through the spring, when food becomes more abundant.
Imagine taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride among an elk herd numbering in the thousands. At the National Elk Refuge, such an adventure is available to winter visitors from mid-December through early April
Trips are available via a private contractor, Double H Bar, Inc. The National Elk Refuge also offers additional wildlife viewing excursions and daily programs at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center.
