Grand Teton Singletrack
A sharp rise and jagged horizon set the Grand Tetons apart from the rest of the Rocky Mountains. Just forty miles long and ten miles wide, this relatively small section of the Rockies is also the youngest. Unlike other ranges in the Rockies, the Tetons have not been around long enough to have acquired the foothills and softer lines caused by centuries of erosion. The Grand Teton National Park and National Forest protect this unique geographical feature, which rises to 13,770 feet, and the wildlife, ecology, and recreation opportunities it harbors-such as mountain biking!
Our mountain bike tour encompasses three distinct regions around Jackson Hole. On the valley floor, in the "hole" surrounded by mountains, we ride the rolling prairie trails of Antelope Flats. To the east, we loop around through the Red Hills area. From here, we can see the ridgeline of our next ride directly across the valley, high in the Teton Mountains. From Monument Ridge trail, we have great views of the Gros Ventre and Wind River mountain ranges. We also bike past some of the tributaries of the Snake River, where in the valley below, we'll spend a morning rafting its rapids. Then we turn to the Flagstaff and Blackrock areas to complete our quest for the best of the Grand Tetons.
We encourage you very strongly to purchase travel insurance to protect against extenuating circumstances such as illness and injury - believe us, they do come up! We have a special arrangement with TravelGuard insurance so that you may purchase reasonably-priced travel insurance at the same time you place your tour reservation.

Multi-day tours only: If you would like to change to a different tour or departure date after signing up, we will be happy to transfer you on a space available basis up until 45 days prior to your tour. Please provide your transfer request in writing - email is sufficient. Please note, a $25 transfer fee will be deducted from your previous payments for each transfer, and if you later choose to cancel your tour, the cancellation deadlines will apply to the date of the originally scheduled tour. Does not apply to Â½ and full day tours in Las Vegas or Moab.
Escape confirms tours 30 days prior to tour departure; prior to this time, tours may be cancelled due to low enrollment. After your tour is confirmed, it will not be cancelled for low- enrollment, but in rare cases may be cancelled due to weather, government intervention, unsafe trail conditions, or any other reason that would affect the quality of the schedule tour or the safety of its participants. If we are forced to cancel your tour, we will provide a 100% refund and work to add you to another trip that works for you. If you need to cancel your multiday tour for any reason, your request must be in writing - email is sufficient (no phone cancellations will be accepted).
We advise you to avoid non-refundable flights and other travel arrangements, and are not responsible for the costs of such arrangement in the event your tour is canceled. The travel insurance offered in conjunction with our tours covers the cost of your tour, but does not cover additional costs such as travel to and from your tour departure location, and hotel stays prior to or following your tour. Please consider purchasing additional insurance coverage if you have non-refundable travel arrangements.
