New re-routed Channel Lock trail. Grade now averages less than 7% for an easier climb up and increased drainage opportunity. Old Channel Lock trail was reclaimed. Re-route made possible through an Idaho Parks and Recreation grant and completed by Mountain Bike the Tetons trail crew in May 2019.

Access Info

Park along the Horseshoe Canyon Rd., across from swinging gate.
