Exceptionally scenic trail along the edge of the rocky mountain front. The last two miles or so ( going in from the Teton Canyon Rd ) are probably not worth your time unless you're part mountain goat. Otherwise most of the ascent is very manageable. Up higher the trail tends to be more loose and has some to deep ruts in grassy area's, as well as area's where it's hard to keep tack of the trail. But the views make for a nice reward.
The ride back down gets better and better the lower you get, less rocky and a lot fun.
