Escape Adventures offers a Grand Teton mountain bike tour. From Jackson Hole to the Grand Targhee Resort, this cycling excursion offers unmatched views and scenery along with first class service and amenities. Our Grand Teton mountain bike tour makes a perfect summer or fall vacation. From the Tetons down to Snake River Valley, this tour will test a rider both physically an mentally.
A sharp rise and jagged horizon set the Grand Tetons apart from the rest of the Rocky Mountains. Just forty miles long, and ten miles wide, this relatively small section of the Rockies is also the youngest. Unlike other ranges in the Rockies, the Tetons have not been around long enough to have acquired the foothills and softer lines caused by centuries of erosion. The Grand Teton National Park and National Forest protect this unique geographical feature, which rises to 13,770 feet, and the wildlife, ecology, and recreation opportunities it harbors.
Our mountain bike tour encompasses four distinct regions around Jackson Hole and the Teton Range. On the valley floor, in the “hole” surrounded by mountains, we ride the rolling prairie trails of Antelope Flats. To the east, we loop around through the Red Hills/ Gros Ventre area on the Ditch Creek Trail. From here, directly across the valley and south of the Teton Mountains, we can see the Munger Trails. And to the west, on the Idaho side of the Tetons, we enjoy the grand Targhee Resort descending purpose-built singletrack for an afternoon.
With the dramatic backdrop of the Tetons lingering overhead each day, mountain bikers will enjoy the Tetons elevations and technical trails all the more!
