Trail Creek Nordic


Fee: $20.00 - donations appreciated


Old Pass Road at Hwy 22, Wilson WY.


Trail Creek is home to the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club Nordic program, hugely successful in training Jackson Hole youth and Masters to the National Championship level. The 10-mile (16 km) skate and classic track runs through the Trail Creek Ranch property and extends in various loops into Bridger-Teton US forest land. Trail use operates under the guidelines of the Betty Woolsey Trust and its generous legacy. Trail Creek is also home to a number of Western Region youth Nordic races and the Betty Woolsey Race, from December to March. The course has many loops in open meadows and through the forest, challenging uphills and descents (i.e. Faceplant and Suicide Hill), ranging from .5 km to 15 km. The upper west section circles into Bridger-Teton National Forest near the base of Black Canyon. Moose and other wildlife are often spotted. Dogs are not allowed on the Trail Creek main section of trails, only on the west side (Bridger-Teton forest section).
