Grand Teton and Island Park Family Trip
Grand Teton and Island Park is the perfect introduction to mountain biking.
On this trip we will be riding through the meadows and valleys of Island Park just west of Grand Teton National Park. Our route takes us on old railroad grades and forest service roads through the backcountry along many beautiful streams and rivers. There is very little elevation change so that both the climbing and descending are quite manageable. In addition to the biking, there are lots of opportunities for fly fishing, hiking and swimming along the way.
And did we mention the wildlife? On our first day, we will be riding in Harriman State Park, a beautiful wildlife reserve that is home to moose, elk, osprey, eagles and trumpeter swans. From there we will work our way toward the Grand Teton looming in the distance.
On our final day, we will have some free time in the Tetons. One option includes taking a boat ride across Jenny Lake for a spectacular hike to Inspiration Point or Hidden Falls.
