Description

Phillip's can make for a very nice, long climb at roughly 8 miles long. This trail is usually done as a shuttle with a car parked down in Wilson. Other options are to climb the trail then descend Snotel and Phillips Canyon back to the car. If you choose this option, you can ride into Wilson, then up the bike path to the Phillips Canyon trailhead parking lots for a loop.

From the Arrow Trail junction the trail climbs about 1 mile to the top of the ridge. From here you can see down into the Valley and town of Jackson. The climb is moderate through dense forest and the open meadow. The descent, however, is what you've came for.

It starts out fast through some aspen stands and then brings you out to a clearing with views towards the Teton Peaks. The aptly named trail now rides along the ridge, which has a mixture of embedded rock and roots throughout the section.

After this scenic ridge ride, you'll wind back through dense forest with more options to pick up speed. Switchbacks are abundant here as you make your way down. Eventually, Phillip's Ridge meets up with Phillips Canyon at the bottom with a short connector trail ride out to the pavement on Fish Creek Rd.
