Description

One of the best, most loved downhill rides in Teton Valley. It's high speed with great flow and stunning views. Mill Creek is a great uphill ride too, and is often used as a starting or ending trail for multiple loop options at Grand Targhee. Be aware of the cattle gate at the resort boundary and always shut the gate behind you.

This trail can be ridden as an out-and-back by starting at Teton Canyon Road; as a longer out-and-back by adding Colter's Escape; as an even longer out-and-back by adding Buffalo Soldier; as a loop by pedaling up Ski Hill Road, Andy's, Colter's Escape, Mill Creek; as an even longer loop by adding Buffalo Soldier in between Andy's and Colter's Escape; partially by riding Cold Springs to the lower half of this trail.

A popular shuttle ride by parking a car in Teton Canyon and riding from Grand Targhee Resort. Riders often warm up or cool down on the Sheep Bridge Trail across the road. The Cold Springs Trail offers other loop options.
