Teton County's North Pathway begins in Jackson and heads north to the Jenny Lake Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park. The paved pathway offers beautiful views of the iconic Grand Teton mountains, wide open ranges of sagebrush, and opportunities to see wildlife, such as elk, bison, and pronghorns. Paralleling but separated from Highway 89 and Teton Park Road, the pathway offers a safe and comfortable way to traverse the Jackson Hole valley.
The southern end of the trail passes through a National Elk Refuge. To learn more about the wildlife in the refuge, stop at the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center on the north end of Jackson. In this area, you'll also find Flat Creek, a popular spot for fishing; you can pick up a fishing license at the visitor center.
For a worthwhile side trip, take the underpass that forks off from the trail and visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art (2820 Rungius Road), which offers a collection of American art dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, a Sculpture Trail, a family-friendly Children’s Discovery Gallery, and a café. The building itself is a stunner, designed to match the surrounding landscape.
You'll continue on a bridge over the scenic Gros Venture River, pedal past the Jackson Hole Airport, and cross the Snake River. Midway, the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose offers displays on mountaineering, local history, and wildlife.
At the north end of the trail, the Jenny Lake Visitor Center provides exhibits and programming on the geology and ecology of the region. Travelers can also connect to the Jenny Lake Trail to follow the lake's eastern shoreline.
Back in Jackson, you can also enjoy the Jackson Hole Community Pathway System, offering another 27 miles of trail throughout the community and beyond to Wilson and Teton Village.
Three visitor centers along the trail provide parking, restrooms, and drinking water (from south to north):
