The trail begins as a national forest service road and is groomed 2 times/ week by Teton County/Jackson Parks & Rec Dept. for the 1st 3.3 miles one-way (6.6 groomed return) on Monday and Friday, generally in the afternoon. Conditions may vary between grooming days if fresh snowfall has occurred. Good place for both skate and classic skiing on the first section, then turns into a skier tracked trail for classic only.
The trail follows this service road east then turns to the north and eventually narrows, high and deep into the canyon, crosses a divide and connects with upper Cache Creek. However, the trail is normally skied as an out-and-back, and has a feeling of remote beauty even though it is only 20 minutes from the heart of Jackson.
Rolling terrain with an elevation gain/loss of 500’. Snowmobiles are allowed on the Game Creek Trail. Dogs must be kept on a leash for the first mile due to USFS Winter Wildlife Range Regulations. (source: TetonCo/Jackson Parks & Rec)
