    Grand Targhee Bike Park

Not a lot of climbing, just loops around the little mountain. But does have some fast flow through the pine trees, and there are some rocky switchbacks. Not really loose rock, but a bit. Good in either direction, fun little easy cardio loop with some small climbs and fast sections.
