    Caribou-Targhee National Forest, Teton Basin Ranger District

A challenging valley favorite offering short, steep climbs, rock gardens and beautiful views of Teton Valley. One of the first trails to open for the season, as its name implies, most of this trail lies under an Aspen canopy.

This trail can be ridden as an out and back starting at either end; as a loop by starting at either end and returning on State Line Road.

One of the first trails to open for the season. As its name implies, most of this trail lies under an Aspen canopy. This trail offers a bit of everything, smooth trail, rock gardens, with a couple of creek crossings. Do this trail as an out and back and it rides completely differently.

Not the best trail for beginners due to its technical challenge right from the car. Riding south to north offers a little longer downhill but a strenuous start to gain elevation onto the bench. To stretch this ride out try it as an out and back or by riding up Darby Canyon Rd for a few miles to view the Teton foothills, farms, and a long canyon road that goes deep into the Teton Mountains.

Access Info

This trail can be accessed on the south end via Darby Canyon Road (E 3000 S) Directions to trailhead from Victor, ID or on the north end via Rapid Creek Road near State Line Directions to trailhead from Victor, ID.

Turn right onto S Stateline Rd, followed by a left on to Spring Creek Rd. Follow the trailhead signs to parking a parking pullout. The South trailhead access is by way of the Darby Creek Rd. You will turn E. on 3000S and continue to the end of the road. Turn right at the end of the road onto a dirt road and continue South, the road will turn East (continuing South is a driveway). The trailhead is on the North side of the road with a trial information sign. There is an apple tree at the South trailhead that produces tasty apples late in the summer.
