National Elk Refuge
National Elk Refuge Review
Wildlife abounds on this 25,000-acre refuge throughout the year. From late November to March, the highlight is the more than 7,000 elk, many with enormous antler racks, that winter here. Elk can be observed from various pullouts along U.S. 191 or by slowly driving your car on the refuge's winding, unpaved roads. You can take a horse-drawn sleigh ride for the chance to see the elk up close. Among the other animals that make their home here are buffalo, bighorn sheep, and coyotes, as well as trumpeter swans and other waterfowl. In summer, the range is light on big game, but you can tour a historic homestead from June to September. From mid-December to early April, sleigh rides depart every 15 minutes or so from the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center. Wear warm clothing, including hats, gloves, boots, long johns, and coats.
