Ride this super fun trail as an exit from Ditch Creek. Going up it is a pretty stout climb.
This trail can be accessed directly from the trailhead on the Gros Ventre Road [Directions to trailhead from Kelly, WY
] or indirectly from Ditch Creek by starting at the Teton Science School [Directions from Kelly, WY
] and pedaling up Ditch Creek Road.
This trail can be ridden as a very difficult out and back; as a loop by starting at the Horsetail Creek on Gros Ventre Rd, pedaling up the Horsetail Creek East Fork trail to the the junction with Ditch Creek and returning downhill on Horsetail Creek proper; as a loop by starting at the Teton Science School, pedaling up Ditch Creek Road, continuing onto the Ditch Creek/South Ridge Trail, turning left (east) at the junction with Horsetail Creek (T intersection), turning right (west) onto the Gros Ventre Road, turning right (north) onto the Lower Gros Ventre Road, and right (east) onto Ditch Creek Road to return to the Teton Science School [Directions from trailhead to trailhead
]. The 11 mile road ride can be shuttled by leaving a vehicle at the Horsetail Creek trailhead [Directions to trailhead from Kelly, WY
]; this loop could potentially be ridden in reverse but would be very difficult.
