Lithium - Mountain Bike the Tetons

Lithium is a steep, DH only trail with natural terrain features, technical rock gardens, and gap jumps. All jumps have go-arounds. One of the original, classic DH trails built as part of the Teton Pass DH trail network. The longest ride of all the DH trails in the network, it's definitely worth the trip out to Mt. Ely for the views alone. AN expert only trail.
