High Point

An off the radar, backcountry route in the shadow of the Tetons. Ride begins with a road climb to Ditch Creek. Ditch Creek trail may have trees down and a small boggy section. Horsetail descent is pure, rugged backcountry beauty. Keep in mind that you are traveling in grizzly bear country. Carrying and knowing how to properly use bear spray on this ride is highly recommended. Ride can be shuttled or ridden as a loop.
