“A loop ride around Shadow Mountain with great views of the Tetons!”
— Jason Jolly
We started with old coordinates from MTBR, and got lost. So we did a little more research and set our own coordinates and found the ride!
The new, correct coordinates for the parking area are: 43°42'13.55"N, 110°37'21.44"W.
To start this ride, pedal ~3.5 miles (and ~1400ft) up Forest Road 30340
, which is open to pretty much every type of traffic. At the top, hang a left onto the obvious singletrack, Shadow Mountain Trail
, and enjoy a great, flowing ride down!
There is a bit of sand in the corners, but nothing terrible. There are also a few small drops, but everything is rollable.
On the singletrack, the upper section has 3-4 splits, but they come back together very shortly. About half way down, you run into the first obvious real split in the trail; there will be one more further down...
Stay left to follow this ride, heading right may take you to the same area - explore!
The Shadow Mountain Trail
will dump you out on the East Boundary access road, and you can see the parking area to your left. Pedal the road back to your vehicle, and do another loop if you have time!
