Shuttle Ride

Start at the top of Teton Pass head out on Black Canyon towards Lithium. Saddle up and get ready for Lithium, this is the original trail constructed by the Teton Freedom Riders that made history. Stay loose in the saddle as this trails gets steep and loose.

Take Lithium all the way to the end as it joins Black canyon. Shortly after you will be back on pavement (the old pass road) follow the road up to Crater. Hop on Crater if you want to peddle on dirt or continue on the pavement. Ultimately you will end up back on The Old Pass Road and peddle all the way to Fuzzy Bunny.

Gear up and mind the gaps, might want to check a few of these jumps out first before you send them. (All the gap jumps have ride arounds) and rally down this rad addition to the Teton Pass Trails. Finish back at the Old Pass Road and Peddle up towards Phillips Connector.

Take Phillips Connector crossing the main road towards Phillips Canyon Trail Head. Ride up Philips Ridge Road for a bit and then hop on Snotel.

Take Snotel all the way to the Phillips Ridge Trail. Stay on Phillips ridge trail until you get to the 1st skinny crossing the creek. Don't Dab going across other wise you'll be wet and hurting. Stop here grabs some water and get ready for the Timed Decent.

Pretty simple bomb down Phillips ridge all the way to the Road. Watch for peddle strikes. This is honestly my favorite trail to bomb in the hole area. Fast, Raw and Rugged just awesome. Be cautious at the end as it essentially dumps you directly onto the road at full speed.

Ride the Pavement back to Wilson and grab a beer at the Stage Coach (you've earned it)!

Top half has a lot of hike-a-bike snow sections, but once you get to the turn-off to Lithium, it's dry the rest of the way down (Lithium is not). There are three or so tree's that are down and crossing the trail. Otherwise GTG.
