Dubois Museum and Torrey Lake Petroglyphs Hike
Join Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department for an outing to visit the Dubois Museum and a hike among the Torrey Lake Petroglyphs located approximately a half hour from Dubois. Museum staff will be our guide to view Native American Petroglyphs. The Dinwoody-tradition petroglyphs, a type of rock art, are ancient images pecked into large boulders scattered throughout the Torrey Valley. Many archeologists believe the petroglyphs were made by ancestors of the modern-day Shoshone people. The trip includes many opportunities to view different petroglyphs and a discussion of theories about their origins. The hikes are minimal distance but include some steep climbs at an elevation of over 7200’ and trekking poles are suggested. Hikers should plan to bring raingear, extra clothing, hat, sunscreen, lunch, snacks and water and sturdy shoes or boots should be worn. Participants are expected to be well prepared for any weather conditions. Transportation and snacks provided. Age 18 and older.
