Southbound is a meandering trail along the east and northeast ridges of the Horseshoe Canyon Trail System. Excellent views of the Tetons and Teton Valley along the southeastern and eastern portions. The trail ducks into heavy timber for a fun descent when riding counter-clockwise. A great loop connector with Channel Lock. Trail surface varies from rock, to kitty litter to forested loam and roots.
