Grand Teton National Park and the southeastern quadrant of Yellowstone combined with the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the magnificent Wind River Range to the south and east of the parks provide the breathtaking backdrop for this Yellowstone Country cycling tour.
We’ll assemble in Jackson and ride beneath the spires of the Tetons into Grand Teton Park on Day 1. We’re headed to Jackson Lake on this day where we’ll spend our first two overnights at the Jackson Lake Lodge. Day 2 may be a layover day, not to be mistaken for a rest day. We’re hiking to Lake Solitude on this day (14 miles) for what we at Timberline consider to be the absolute best day hike in our entire hiking program.
We’ll ride from Jackson Lake on Day 3 and then climb from the lake’s shoreline to the Snake River and on into Yellowstone. We’ll spend our second overnight at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel on the shores of this high-country jewel and then ride to the East Entrance by way of Sylvan Pass (8,530') on Day 4. From the east gate, we’ll descend along the Shoshone River through Shoshone Canyon to Cody and arrive early enough to visit the incredible Buffalo Bill Western Museum.
Early morning of Day 5, we’ll ride from Cody into the heart of the Big Horn Basin to Thermopolis, home to the world’s largest mineral hot springs. It’s on to Lander on Day 6. the southern gateway to the Winds and Bridger-Teton Wilderness. Early that morning, on our way to Lander, we’ll ride through the magnificent Wind River Canyon. We’ll trace the course of the Wind River much of the following day as we skirt the eastern flank of the Winds to Dubois, where we’ll spend our final evening.
Beautiful Togwotee Pass (9,668’) awaits on our final day as we climb moderately through the Bridger-Teton Forest to Togwotee’s summit atop the Continental Divide. That first view of the jagged spires of the Tetons as we descend from Togwotee is a view for the ages. We’ll return to Grand Teton Park at Moran and then van shuttle back to Jackson where our cycling tour concludes.
