Jackson Hole Biking

In summer and fall Jackson Hole is an avid bicycling community. Miles of trails wind in and around the Jackson Hole valley, offering varied terrain and varied difficulty levels. From steep climbs and descents to flat, smooth dirt roads with spectacular views, the Jackson Hole area has rides for bikers of all abilities.

 
Jackson Hole locals take to the streets on their bikes, many forgoing cars entirely for the summer months. Appeasing an active demographic, 28 miles of paved bike paths offer options for a joy ride or a commute between major hubs – south from Game Creek, north through Jackson Hole and along Flat Creek, and another extending west to take in the route to Teton Village and Wilson. Jackson Hole Community Pathways works with Friends of Pathways to secure funding and implement more and more appropriate routes. Proposed paths in Grand Teton National Park will begin to open approximately 40 more miles of paved paths. In Idaho pathways connect Victor and Driggs with more still planned. The ultimate goal, although still very long-term, is to acquire the funding to connect Wilson on the Wyoming side to Victor on the Idaho side and Jackson Hole all the way to Grand Teton National Park.

Jackson Hole road bikers push the limits of endurance, pedaling mountain passes and plying the network of highways in the Jackson Hole area. By mountain bike, backcountry trails seem to have no limits either. Cache Creek and Snow King connect as trails crisscross along the hillside just blocks from the town center. Further west along the southeastern base of the Tetons is a corridor with excellent trails. On the Idaho side, the Big Holes and Teton Canyon Trailhead make popular spots to kick off a ride.

Overview
A locally produced trail map, costing around $4, highlights many of Jackson Hole’s most popular rides, including a number within Grand Teton National Park. (Please note: it is illegal to ride on foot trails inside the park or in designated wilderness areas.) Rental bikes are available at various bicycle shops in Jackson and the town of Moose.

Remember, a good bike fit is important, especially with a rental that you're not familiar with. Also, carry a patch kit and pump when you're out on the trail. Or, consider one of the bike tour operators in town. They supply transportation, bikes and information about the surroundings on the ride.
