Jackson Hole is truly an outdoor lover's paradise. One of the best ways to explore Jackson Hole is on two wheels. Find out more about the top places to cycle and mountain bike while you're here!
1. Cache Creek Road
This easy two-track dirt trail is perfect for first-time mountain bikers. Cache Creek is easily accessible from downtown Jackson. The trail passes through wildflower-filled meadows along Cache Creek and you won’t believe you’re just minutes from the Town Square. The Cache Creek trail connects to a wide variety of more intermediate and advanced single-track mountain-bike trails at Snow King Mountain Resort and the surrounding forest, so you can make your ride as long or short as you wish.
2. Cache Creek Sidewalk & Putt Putt Trail
Cache Creek Sidewalk is a single-track mountain bike trail provides gentle, flowing ups and downs for beginner and intermediate riders. You can make a great loop when connecting this trail to the Putt Putt trail. Putt Putt is a single-track mountain bike trail that is gentle enough for beginner riders, but with fast downhill sections, sustained uphill sections, tight corners, and occasional rock gardens, to provide excitement for all skill levels. This trail, which roughly parallels Cache Creek Road, can be ridden in either direction—it is mostly a fast downhill when ridden from the end of the Cache Creek trail back to town, but strong riders can bike uphill from town or the Cache Creek Trailhead for a true leg-burning challenge.
What better way to experience the park than by bike? Avoid the crowds of summer and come to Jackson Hole in the spring or fall for a one-of-a-kind experience. Keep an eye on Yellowstone's Bicycling page for up to date information on road openings and closings before heading to the park. Cyclists are urged to respects the rules of the road and ride with caution, as road conditions can be unpredictable. Remember that services are limited in the park, so be prepared with plenty of water and food. And respect wildlife! If you come across bison in the road, consider turning around.
4. Old Pass Road
This multi-use paved pathway gradually climbs from the Town of Wilson to the summit of Teton Pass, gaining over 2,000 vertical feet from beginning to end. The views from the top of Teton Pass are stunning, and it’s all downhill back to Wilson. This ride is suitable for road bikes or mountain bikes, and Old Pass Road provides connections to a large network of more advanced downhill mountain-biking trails. After the challenging ride to the top, reward yourself with a beer and burger at the Stagecoach Bar at the bottom of the hill in Wilson.
5. Jenny Lake Pathway
For amazing views, take your two wheels to Jenny Lake pathway. The path extends all the way from downtown Jackson to Antelope Flat Road in Grand Teton National Park.
