“Rocky Mountain Way is a great connector between Mill Creek and the Andy's / Buffalo Soldier junction”— Dana Ramos
Family Friendly Mellow grade, wide smooth trail.
This trail can be accessed from the base area at Grand Targhee.
This trail can be ridden as an out-and-back starting at the base area of Grand Targhee Resort by climbing Andy's or Action Jackson to the Junction of Andy's, Buffalo Soldier and Action Jackson and descending Rocky Mountain Way to Mill Creek; as a longer ride by adding Buffalo Soldier and or Colter's Escape; as an even longer ride by continuing down Mill Creek to Teton Canyon.
The trail itself is a climb when begun from the base of the mountain, though the steepest portions will be out of the way at the start. As you switchback up the mountainside, enjoy the beautiful views that open up beneath you.
Suggested route including this trail would be to climb Action Jackson, round Buffalo Soldier counter-clockwise, descend Colter's Escape to Mill Creek, climb back up to the ridge via Rocky Mountain Way and head back down Andy's to the base for a beer.
