Ashton-Tetonia Trail

Beautiful ride

August, 2020 by lwilson

Rode this trail from Ashton to Tetonia to enjoy the view of the Tetons in front of me much of the way. The slight incline wasn't that noticeable, only when the trail turned from the small cinder-type surface to larger rocks. Surrounded by golden fields of wheat made the ride extra beautiful mid-August. Pre-ride, my SAG driver and I decided on a few little towns we saw on the map for checkpoints with each other. Turns out each of those "little towns" was now only the remaining, abandoned grain elevator. Remember when every little town had a grain elevator?

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

Beautiful Ride through the Heart of the Teton Valley

August, 2020 by frankterraferma

The Ashton-Tetonia is a trail of the Idaho State Park sytem. As a rail-trail, it makes for a nice level cut through the bountiful and hilly Teton Valley. Beauty abounds while riding in the shadows of the majestic Teton Mountains. I rode the lower half of this trail very recently, beginning at the southern trailhead in Tetonia and going about 15 miles or so to just north of Lamont before heading back. This section takes you across an impressive trestle! It starts off a bit rocky but after about 2 miles the unpaved surface improves quite a bit making for a great ride!

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

oh my heck!!

July, 2020 by jumpinpiggie

Only did 8 miles of this starting in Ashton, but it was phenomenal!! You’re right smack dab in the middle of the rolling hills. Went over an amazing bridge!! The gravel is nicely packed. I rode a fat bike, but we also took kids trailers with suspension and that did great! Someone else rode a cross country bike and did great. So amazing!!

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Not a destination trail ,But..

July, 2020 by resifenceinc

If you're in Idaho Falls it's a must ride as a city trail it's tops. Paved about 6 miles the water falls are beautiful. I had no problem following it across the road. In the summer it is a city full of tourist so watch yourself when crossing roads...

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

views and blues (sky that is)

June, 2020 by aparrott58

Rode from Felt to Lamont and from Ashton to Drummond. Nice trail with great views. The only problem were the cross trail ruts caused by the moles digging into the trail in the winter (and leaving mounds of dirt that are uncovered when the snow melts) and the larger mammals who burrow into the trail surface and leave either big holes or mounds. It seems that since this trail is a state park, the state needs to put a little more maintenance on the trail surface and get rid of these frequent holes. The trail surface is rough in areas. Maybe the state left it like this for authenticity? The trestles are stunning. The state is making more parking areas to spread out the use as the 5 THs were crowded on the nice Saturday we rode.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Worthy of A Ride

June, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Idaho Falls, ID
Parking: Ryder Park, south end of trail
Trail Condition: Some sections excellent, some portions older and needs attention. Good number of sections need some brushing work to clear brush, low hanging tree limbs, and weeds from along the trail.
Signage: Very minimal. Take a map along.
Comments: Overall I really enjoyed this trail. Great scenery and variety of art along trail. It passes through a number of parks and green spaces. A number of other trail users were encountered. I rode the complete trail system and logged 16 miles. From south end to northern end the most direct route was 5.7 miles.

Lots of Interconnected Little Trails

September, 2018 by adventureskating.com

Lots of variety on this relatively short system of trails. I skated from Idaho State to Edson Fichter Nature Area and back. There are a few hills near campus but they aren't too steep. I really liked the varying scenery on these trails. Hills, sunflower fields, in-town section with big rock cliffs, sagebrush flatland, creekside, and then ending at a nice pond. Pavement is pretty good except along the creek on the way to Edson Fichter where it's rough for skating.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Still under development, but several beautiful loops and extensions are available for short bike day trips or walks. Signage much better now.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Not 11 miles

July, 2018 by cldtennant

I agree with the prior posting, no signage, confusing, and hard to navigate. But the most disappointing part is that it was not 11 miles from one into the other. It’s 5 1/2 miles long and that was with getting lost several times. This needs to be corrected by rails to trails Conservancy.

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

Idaho Falls Greenbelt

September, 2016 by adsaxs

We started our ride at Freeman Park on Science Center Drive and did an out-and-back ride for the entire trail.

The greenbelt guide that is available online is broken down into sections and is somewhat confusing. The trail is paved but the trail surface is a mixed bag. Some parts are narrow with tree roots protruding on the trail. Other sections, such as the east side of Memorial Loop, are wide and recently re-paved.

There is no signage at all. At some points, the trail crosses some major intersections such as the Pancheri Bridge and there was little thought given to how the cyclist might safely cross the busy street. The trail along the Sunnyside Extension passes through an industrial area. You can continue along the west side of the trail and cycle through the Snake River Landing Trails but, again, no signage as to how to get there.

This city is not cyclist friendly so you’ll have to watch out for motorists who don’t know how to behave around cyclists.

The section of the trail near downtown called Temple Loop and Memorial Loops are pretty and take you through parks along the Snake River. There is some nice artwork in the parks with plenty of green grass and places to sit and have a picnic.

Overall, I feel that this path is geared more for walkers. However, it is an interesting way to see a slice of downtown Idaho Falls that is quicker than walking.

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

Need the proper equipment!

July, 2016 by mamory

My dad and I rode this trail starting at Ashton. He rides a comfort bike and I'm on a hybrid. I loved the views, but I pretty much hated the trail surface. I'm not a fan of mountain biking and that was part of my problem! It was widely variable with lots of softs spots, rocks, ruts, and other things I wasn't a fan of riding over! Also, there is no shade!

Ashton-Tetonia Trail

What a fun trip

October, 2015 by calvinator101

Went with my wife and 14yr son from Tetonia to Ashton. Took about 5 hours. Started about 130p and finished before 7p. It was fun and will do it again. We choose the Tetonia to Ashton direction because it's had a net downhill grade. Glad we did because this is the first bike ride for my wife and 30 miles is a long way to go for a beginner. She was a real trooper and finished in first place.

Overall it was a great ride. Beautiful scenery, easy ride and no one else on the trail.
