    Grand Targhee Bike Park

Love this trail going down. You can climb it, and it is a difficult climb up in a few sections. Beautiful view of the Tetons as you crest the highest point. Going down it has organic rock and root jumps even a gap that looks natural. Fast and fun down, and perfect way to end your day at the Grand Targhee. Use caution on the descent as you may encounter riders climbing the trail.

Access Info

Access from Grand Targhee Resort of from the Teton Canyon parking area.

       Very easy to shuttle, or climbable if need be! Word is you can catch the targhee shuttle trucks and get to the resort for a couple bucks. However you do it, this is a great trail with a nice rhythm and fantastic views!
