Trail Overview

The trailhead starts off with a short, dry, loose steep entrance, which then meanders through the tree line. At the first intersection, stay right, this will take you to Elk Mountain. On a clear day, you can see the Tetons. Don't be surprised if you see Elk. No water crossing. Cell reception available only at the top of Elk Mountain.


This trail is likely to intimidate novice riders, especially this first 50 feet with a moderate loose rock section. The remaining is an intermediate single track switch back through the tree line. On the west side of Elk Mountain the single track has an off camber with west facing exposure. Conservatively rating this section of trail will take around an 1 hour for all the selfies or wildlife photo opportunities, the views are spectacular.
