Drake Creek - Mountain Bike the Tetons

A rooty, rocky descent from the top of the Big Hole Mountains, this downhill run gets the adrenaline pumping.

Access

This trail can be accessed directly from Drake Creek trailhead [Directions to trailhead from Victor, ID] or indirectly from either the Grove Creek trailhead [Directions to trailhead from Victor, ID] or the Spooky trailhead [Directions to trailhead from Victor, ID].

Options

Probably best to only ride this trail downhill as it’s mostly too steep and technical to pedal.  This trail can be ridden as part of a loop including GroveCreek/Big Hole Crest (left at junction)/Drake Creek returning on W 9000 S/S 4500 W/Grove Creek Rd; as part of a larger loop or partially shuttled ride starting near W 9000 S and Hwy 31 and pedaling or driving up Hwy 31 past the summit of Pine Creek Pass to the Spooky trailhead and continuing up Spooky/Corral Creek (right at junction)/Big Hole Crest (right at junction past Grove Creek)/Drake Creek and returning to the car via S 4500 W to W9000 S and Hwy 31.
