The Stilson Loop Trail is a short, easy loop adjacent to the Wilson Centennial Trail on flat, groomed terrain in the southeast corner of the Wilson Meadows. Groomed on Tuesday and Thursday by Teton Co/Jackson Parks & Rec, generally in the morning, the trail shares the same trailhead as the Centennial trail (northeast side of the Stilson area). The loop can be skied in either direction – this description goes counter-clockwise.
The trail begins next to Centennial Trail, and parallels this for approx. 1/3 mile heading west. The trail crosses a short wood fence bridge, then turns left (south) 100 yds further. Continue south following the wood fence boundary to near Hwy 22, then turn left, heading north-east. Follow the track 200 yds, then it bends north behind the Stilson “warming hut”, then turns right (east) back to the trail head.
Wide open views of Teton Pass, Glory Bowl, the southern Tetons and Snake River Range makes for a nice, dog-friendly ski in clear weather.
Both Stilson and the Wilson Centennial trails are excellent spots for kids, beginners, dogs, a quick bit of exercise. The Stilson "warming hut" on the west side of the main parking area has heated bathrooms.
