Teton Valley

Fee: $0.00 - donations appreciated

Nemo and Lady Slipper trails are two connected trails that are renowned for winter fat biking in addition to 3-season mountain biking. Offers a fantastic, smooth trail experience featuring substantial climbs and enjoyable rolling hills through lodgepole pine forest. Extremely convenient for Victor residents, Teton Pass travelers, and also accessible from Wilson.

Access points: Pole Canyon, Teton Springs (west side), and Sherman Springs access road.

Trail sections (west to east): Lower Lady Slipper, Upper Lady Slipper, and Nemo.
Lower Lady Slipper (from Pole Canyon).

Dog Note: Closed to Dogs: December 15 - April 15 (New rule from 2020).

Nordic Skiers: While Nordic skiers are allowed, the grooming primarily caters to fat bikes. Kindly yield space to bikers and step off the trail when they approach.

Direction: Begin by heading south for a quarter-mile to reach the summer mountain bike trailhead. The trail ascends steeply up a hillside, levels out, and follows a similar path as the summer mountain bike trail towards the east. Experience a delightful rolling downhill, followed by a milder climb, and descent into Mike Harris. Return via the same path.

Grooming: These trails are groomed as a fat bike single track by Teton Valley Trails and Pathways (TVTAP). Local bikers and Fitzgerald's Bicycles - Victor assist with grooming and maintenance.

Facebook Updates: Regular updates available on their Facebook page. Winter grooming marks the trail; follow this clear route as side drifts can be tricky.

Summer Recreators: In non-winter seasons, this is a popular mountain biking trail. Be vigilant of bikers in both directions, yield appropriately, and consider alternative hiking trails in the vicinity.
