Paved cycling pathways criss-cross through town and beyond, linking Jackson with other towns and destinations of interest. For example, you can ride the 20-mile distance from Jackson all the way to Jenny Lake on paved pathways. One section of Jackson’s pathway system is even an incredible bridge spanning the Snake River.
You can use these pathways to cycle around town, take a leisurely family bike ride (without having to worry about road traffic), or travel longer distances. These pathways are also e-bike friendly for those looking for a less taxing ride or to quickly cover more ground. For detailed maps and other information about the pathways, please refer to Friends of Pathways.
