Icons

JHNordic enables you to search for one or many trails by choice of Region, Trail name, Distance, Difficulty, Snow quality and grooming, Dog access, Snow-shoe and Fat bike access.

On the Trail Search page, each icon represents a way to choose /filter what you are looking for. Click on an icon image to turn it on and off. Or try a broad search by region, snow quality/grooming, dog-friendly, etc.

Snowmobile tracked

Snowmobile Tracked

Trail is packed by snowmobiles, either USFS groomed or recreational users. (This can be a decent track for classic skis on otherwise untracked trails)

Trails where fat bikes are allowed. (Since this is growing all the time, please let us know updates on new trails)

Other Icons

Trails which are a loop or a series of loops. Some Trails may have options to ski either one or several loops or out and back

Out and back icon

Dog Friendly

Dogs are allowed on most public groomed trails (Teton Co/Jackson Parks & Rec Trails & TVTAP trails) as well as US Forest Service trails. In some cases, dogs must remain on a leash. Dogs are also permitted on a leash on the groomed Jenny Lake to Signal Mtn trail in GTNP. Remember to pick up after your dog and respect other people and dogs on the trail.
