The community, the valley and the lake were all named after mountain man, trapper and trader, David Jackson. Approximately four miles north of Jackson, to the east off US 26-89-191, upheavals of mountains and erosion have produced an interesting formation. The works of nature have created a "Sleeping Indian," complete with mouth, nose, flowing headdress and folded arms across the chest. With a sharp eye and a little imagination you can see the Indian on the horizon. The National Elk Refuge, northeast of Jackson, provides a home for thousands of elk each winter. Visitors can take sleigh rides among the elk from mid-December through April.

Jackson Hole is encompassed on all sides by mountain barriers. The hole - or valley - is 48 miles long and for the most part, six to eight miles wide, embracing an area of approximately 400 square miles. It lies a few miles west of the Continental Divide and occupies the central portion of the headwaters of the Snake River. Mountain streams converge radically toward it from the surrounding highlands, and the Snake River receives these as it flows through the valley.  With so many mountain ranges within a stone’s throw,

Jackson is a hub of outdoor recreation opportunity. Wildlife watching is easy here; elk, deer, and many other small mammals can be found throughout the valley. A plethora of bird species hangs in the valley throughout the year including various ducks, geese and even swans. As it is with mountain ranges, skiing is the major winter pastime andJackson Hole Mountain ResortSnow King and Grand Targhee all offer an excellent skiing experience and accommodations.

Don't Miss: The famed Elk Horn Gates that lead into the town's lovely, tree-shaded town square where locals come to relax.
