Slate Creek and Dry Dallas OHV Trail System

Saturday, July 23, 2016

Alt Names

Bridger - Teton National Forest, Jackson Ranger District, Gros Ventre River, Mckinney Pass, Bear Paw Pass, Lightning Pass, Crystal Creek Campground, Red Hills Campground, Slate Creek, Dallas Fork, Bear Paw Fork, Mount Leidy Highlands

Last Known StatusOpen

This area has about 18 miles of rugged ATV trails that wind through beautiful forests, scenic meadows and panoramic mountain ranges.

The trail system is accessible via two trailheads (Slate Creek and Dry Dallas Lake Road) but the Slate Creek Trailhead can only be accessed by crossing the Gros Ventre River which is usually not passable until mid or late July. Camping is available at Crystal Creek and Red Hills Campground, both offering scenic and quiet sites overlooking the river. Please note that this area is Grizzly Bear country so come prepared.

For current river and trail conditions contact the Jackson Ranger District at (307) 739-5400.

For a detailed trail map see pages 9 and 11.
