The 3 Best Mountain Bike Shuttle Runs on Teton Pass

Shred the best shuttle runs in the renowned trail system on Teton Pass.

Description

Teton Pass is "already on the map as a paradise of easy access for backcountry skiing, but the same goes for downhill biking,” writes Brigid Mander on TetonGravity.com. The Teton Pass trail network began life as a collection of illegal underground trails, but eventually, the builders organized and went legit. Thanks to "local trail advocates and progressive land managers from the Bridger-Teton National Forest,” the local trail builders were able to construct "the nation’s first (legal) downhill-bike only trail network on public land and minimize user conflict.”

"Teton Pass is unique in that there are a lot of multi-use and DH trails crammed into a small space – but the trails are well-signed, so pay attention, respect the community order and be courteous, so that everyone in this highly trafficked spot stays happy,” continues Mander.

In this guidebook, we’ve culled the Teton Pass trails down to just three of the very best shuttle runs. If your only goal is going big, then head to Fuzzy Bunny -> Powerline Jumps -> Parallel Trail. This double black diamond run features the biggest hits in the region! If you’re looking for a longer enduro-style adventure, then the Black Canyon trail should be your go-to. Finally, if you want to split the difference between classic singletrack and downhill gnar and features, Lithium offers the best of both worlds!
