Fun single track with lots of high speed sections. Most people ride down this trail but it is multi use and gets uphill traffic as well. Keep an eye out for hikers and equestrians particularly near the bottom.

Access Info

This trail can be accessed from the Trail Creek or Teton Pass Trailheads.

      Patches of snow from Teton Pass to Antenna, more from Antenna to ridge and then almost all snow along the ridge (maybe a mile total). Black Canton...

      It snowed last night, but the trail was fine, never rutted. Damp, allowed tire tread, but no ruts.

      Perfect. There was a trail team out in front of me that cleared a recently downed tree.

       This was pretty wack when we rode it July 9th tons of down trees, some with re routes. Most of which were loose, steep, and very annoying.

       A Teton classic, for sure. And in great shape right now.

       Rode yesterday (June 19). From Antenna to Ridge there are on/off patches of snow, then on the ridge itself probably close to a mile of pure snow cover you have to walk. Once you get past that though the descent down Black Canyon itself is almost perfect conditions. Some lingering snowmelt to watch out for up top but otherwise soft (but not too soft) and not too dry/loose.
