Horsetail Creek Trail

AKA: Bridger - Teton National Forest, Jackson Ranger District, Atherton Creek Campground, Lower Slide Lake, Gros Ventre River, Ditch Creek, Horse Tail Creek

Summary


Located near the eastern shores of Lower Slide Lake, Horsetail Creek Trail has a single track trail that forms a long but scenic loop. The trail is about ten miles long but is geared for experienced riders due to steep climbs and descents and narrow switchbacks. After finishing the loop, just head about five miles east past the staging area and check out the Slate Creek and Dry Dallas Trails. This is a very scenic area that has panoramic views of mountains, meadows and canyons. Camping is permitted at Atherton Creek Campground which has about 30 sites, each with a picnic table, fire ring, water fountains and a boat ramp.
