Mosquito Creek

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Bridger-teton National Forest, Jackson Ranger District, Swinging Bridge, Cottonwood Creek, Mill Creek, Teton Pass, Taylor Creek

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

This part of the Bridger-Teton National Forest offers around 12 miles of pure single track. The location is a bit remote and there is no designated staging area, so parking is limited. The trails can easily be covered in a couple hours but there are still several forest service roads to explore, making this a good place to bring a dual sport motorcycle.

The area is very scenic but has a short season (June through November). During wet weather the main entrance road can be very difficult to drive on and should be avoided.

Please note that these trails are only open to dirt bikes, hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use. Those looking for ATV trails should try North Shadow Mountain, Slate Creek/Dry Dallas or Murphy Squaw ATV Trail.
