Jackson Hole, synonymous with national parks and incredible skiing, is also home to some of the nation’s best mountain biking. From the epic downhill trails on Teton Pass to the picturesque and exhilarating cross-country trails that line the valley, Jackson Hole has a mountain bike experience for any level of rider. If you find yourself with a hankering to sample some of our local “brown pow,” but you aren’t quite sure where to go, I recommend checking in with Hoback Sports in Jackson. Their Fat Tire Mountain Bike Tours for families, groups or individuals will take you to the best local riding while providing a guide, a rental bike and a commemorative water bottle.
Hoback Sports’ Fat Tire Tours offer trips to two locations in Jackson Hole. First is a local’s favorite – Munger Mountain. Located south of Wilson, Munger offers great views of the Snake River as well as the surrounding mountains. Munger Mountain is cross-country riding at its finest. The trail system has great descents, fun climbs and offers views that many visitors to the valley never get the chance to see. The second option is Shadow Mountain. Located east of the Tetons, Shadow offers spectacular views of the Tetons and Grand Teton National Park. Most groups choose to take the van ride to the top of Shadow and enjoy the Hidden Trail as it descends to the valley floor. Groups make 1-2 descents depending on skill level. You may choose to ride up and down Shadow if you desire.
Fat Tire Tours is a great way to spend your time in Jackson Hole. They recommend the trips for riders of intermediate skill level and above, and are tailored to the participant’s skill level at the beginning of each ride and the trip lasts 3-4 hours. Trips start and end a Hoback Sports and the price includes bike rental, guide, water bottle and shuttles to and from the trail head. I assure you that these tours offer unique experiences that will be enjoyed by all participants.
