    Good question. We drove through today, sure is beautiful. The area around Salt Pass looked like great biking terrain.

    Wanna give this a bump. Me, my Wife & 5yo will be headed to Afton to see my mom from 7-4 thru 7-7. Planned on bringing bikes to ride around the area. Both of us are solid riders. I know about Jackson & all the great DH trails there, just trying not to leave the boy too long with grandparents : ). So, anything worth looking into?

    Cheers,
    Stu

    Yes, unfortunately I forge the names of the two trails I rode when I was working there 10 years ago (holy cow, that long ago already).

    Both trails were south of town and within a half hour drive. The closest was on the east side of the main road and initially climbed southward along a small creek before switchbacking up above tree line. The other was farther out of town and west of the main road, then down a dirt road for some distance. That trail was named after some kind of creek (dry, crow, silver, etc).

    I know of two areas that may have some trail, Swift Creek, which is a service road along the creek, which ends at a natural Periodic Spring. We were going to explore that. Also, I remember quite a few years back me & a buddy rode out to Cottonwood Lake & headed up a hunting trail / singletrack, 3-4 miles back came upon a moose family, freaked out & rode back, them was some big animals!

    IMO, the issue is that all of the easier to access trails throughout that area (Star/Swan) are mostly four-wheeler or horse dominated, and tend not to offer the most aesthetic trail experiences. I would imagine after a good rain, some of them could be quite fun...

    Yeah, figured that, as my parents have both horses & quads : ). Just gonna leave the Nomad at home & bring the Stumpy HT & explore.
