      The Horseshoe Canyon Trail System is an early and late season gem. Perfect for a lunch hour spin or a half-day adventure with friends. Trails here are rated beginner to intermediate. Maintained by Mountain Bike the Tetons, this system is signed well, with way-finding points at most trail junctions. Channel Lock and Bovine were re-routed to improve sustainability and the riding experience in 2019.
