Teton Valley Trail Running

The Trail Running in Teton Valley is fantastic. Stemming from a strong culture of outdoor activities, mainly mountain biking, the trail network in Teton Valley Idaho has become very impressive. Nearly every canyon in Teton Valley all the way around the valley features a trail head many connecting to adjacent trails and canyons.

Over the next couple of months I want to highlight some of my favorite trails around the valley. Stay tuned for photos and detailed trail reports for each trail.

Clear Skies and dry trails,

    Hi Chris–I’ll be vacationing in Victor next week. Can you give me directions to some 3-10 mile long scenic trails? I’m coming from sea level running so will need to be cautious with the altitude. Thanks

      Howard, You can’t beat Teton Canyon, very easy to find. From the stoplight in Driggs (there’s only one) head due East towards the Tetons, this is the road from Driggs to Alta, Wy and Targhee. After leaving the town of Alta follow the signs to Teton Canyon, all you have to take is one right hand turn, if you miss it you’ll go to Targhee. It’s a well signed right hand turn just after a cattle guard about 3 miles outside of Alta. Follow this dirt road all the way to the end (about 4 miles) the trail head is at the end of the road. The first several miles of trail are mellow with great views, you can go as far as you want, even all the way through to the other side. This is my favorite run in the valley. If you want some other suggestions you can stop into Teton Running co. on main street in Driggs or Yostmark Mountain equipment on ski hill road. Have fun!
