Mountain Biking Cache Creek - Game Creek Loop

*****   Add a review
#7 of 252 mountain bike trails in Wyoming
#298 in the world

There are several trails that go up and down the Cache Creek Valley which is on the north side of Snow King Mountain. By the time you're five miles up the valley you're into a semi-wilderness area and there will be few people around. Game Creek Trail branches off then and heads south for 5 miles till it meets highway 191 about 9 miles south of Jackson.

This loop combines some of the Cache Creek Valley trails with the Game Creek Trail as well as the shared pathway along highway 191 which completes the loop. You can of course organize a shuttle to avoid the pathway and shorten the ride.

The best trail to take up the Cache Creek Valley is the Putt Putt Trail from the Cache Creek trailhead. Join the Cache Creek Trail when Putt Putt finishes about 3 miles up the valley. The other trails up the valley are best left to the dog walkers or involve some pushing (Hagen).

Your altitude gain from the Cache Creek trailhead to the divide is about 900 feet. You'll then have the pleasure of burning it off as you sail down the Game Creek Trail after you've crossed the divide.

These trails are classic cross-country trails which take you round the isolated back side of the Snow King Mountain. It's a rewarding ride but quite challenging, expecially the steep climb at the start of the Game Creek Trail. It traverses forests and meadows and takes in some stunning panoramas.

You'll pass two junctions on the Game Creek Trail - the Skyline Trail and the West Game Trail. They both come down from the summit hub near the near the top of the mountain.

Another popular loop on Snow King Mountain - actually more popular - is the Perrins-Game-Cache Loop. It was not added to the singletracks database until the time of this update. Several of the older photos and reviews of this trail actually relate to that loop.
