    USFS

This trail is brand new for 2018 The culmination of two years of work between the USFS, Mountain Bike the Tetons and the Teton Valley community. The majority of this trail is machine built with all hand finish-work. It connects the Nemo trail in Southern Valley to Sherman Springs Rd. and further to Pole Canyon. Grades are all less than 10% with wide corners and flow in both directions. Wider grade to accommodate winter fat bike grooming and adaptive athletes. Trail winds through old-growth conifer and aspen stands with views up Pole Canyon and down into Teton Valley. A superb out and back or connector.

Access Info

Find the trail start on the Nemo Trail in Southern Valley (to the west). From the east, park at the Pole Canyon TH or the Sherman Springs TH.
