“A challenging, remote singletrack loop.”— Zach Allen
The trail starts with the comparatively well-traveled South Fork of Horseshoe Canyon trail, and adds on a loop with South Canyon Creek and then North Canyon Creek trails.
Descend the South Canyon Creek drainage for six miles of ripping, narrow moto trail punctuated with some small steep climbs and creek crossings.
At the bottom of the drainage, take a sharp right (marked by a 50 gallon drum) and climb the (mostly) very rideable North Canyon Creek up a drainage parallel to the one you just came down.There will probably be some hiking near the top on loose, rutted moto trail. Stay right at all of the three forks that you encounter. After the second fork you get some great descending through open meadows above treeline. The left option on the last of the three forks is a short fall-line, hike-a-bike to a beautiful view of the Tetons and is a worthwhile out and back.
You'll eventually descend back to the intersection with South Fork of Horseshoe Canyon and Mahogany Creek. Descend either South Fork of Horseshoe Canyon back to where you started, or Mahogany Creek and ride some road back to the start. Better yet, shuttle a car to the bottom of Mahogany Creek. Both are fast, extremely fun descents.
