Rosie's Ridge is an intermediate trail set in the Bridger Teton National Forest, just off Togwotee Pass Road, situated at 7800 feet. The trail follows a forest service dirt road, running on a rolling ridge, west for approximately 4 miles one way/8 miles roundtrip, with gentle descents and climbs. Adjacent to the trail are several open knolls, with striking views of the Tetons range to the west.

Skiing Experience: This trail offers an intermediate skiing experience with gentle descents and climbs, suitable for skiers with some experience.


Beginnings: The trail begins on the north side of the parking area. Head north then immediately start to circle left (south) around a small knoll, climbing a gentle hill on your left for approximately 100 yards.

Uphill Stretch: On the right side at the top of the knoll, look for tall orange poles, indicating a snowmobile trail. The summer service road becomes visible as you head a further 100 yards west, at which point there is a brown metal gate and sign for Critical Wildlife Habitat.

Views: Ski to the top of the first knoll for wide views of the Tetons.

Trail Options - Extended Exploration: There are 4 hilltop "summits" which you can ski to for continuing views west to the Tetons.

Return: The trail is an "out-and-back" so you can make the trip as short or long as you like. Highly recommend skiing the first 1.5 miles to reach the first viewpoint.

Winter Grooming/Winter Conditions: Rosie's often has early and late-season snow, making it a local favorite place to start or end the season.

Summer Conditions: During summer, the trail offers access to beautiful views and is suitable for hiking.

Notes for:

Dog Owners: Dogs must be on leashes to protect wildlife.

Fat Bikers: Can access Four Mile Road to Turpin Meadow Ranch.

Summer Hikers: Trail conditions are suitable for hiking during summer.
