Mountain Biking Ferrins-Game-Cache Loop

****   Add a review
#100 of 238 mountain bike trails in Wyoming
#6,817 in the world

This loop combines the best of the Snow King Mountain trails for a challenging back country adventure ride. It offers stunning views, a soul-soothing semi-wilderness environment, as well as beautiful meadows and forests. You need to be fit and have better than intermediate skills to enjoy it.

Here is a blow by blow description of the loop...

From the Cache Creek trailhead take Hagen Trail for a short distance till you see the Ferrins Trail turnoff.

Ferrins Trail is the best way to the top of the Snow King Mountain. It zig-zags it's way to the saddle that is the summit hub for other trails on the mountain. You will have gained about 1400 feet in a steep and sweaty three miles.

From the summit hub take the West Game Creek Trail. It's five miles of pure joy as it take you down, down, down to the Game Creek Trail. It's a feast for the eyes as well as the brake pads. You won't stop smiling till you get to the Game Creek Trail. Turn left!

Next you climb steadily up Game Creek Trail for 2.2 miles to the divide before going down into the Cache Creek catchment. You'll soon come to the Cache Creek Trail where you turn left for the mainly down hill run back to the trailhead.

Two miles down the Cache Creek Trail you should choose between the Hagen Trail and Putt Putt. Hagen is a rocky, rooty trail with some rough steps that are fun to ride down if you have advanced skills. Putt Putt is the easier option. Both trails will take you to the Cache Creek trailhead to complete the loop.

Another Snow King Mountain Loop - the Cache-Game Loop goes the opposite way up the Cache Creek Valley and doesn't go over the summit saddle.

    This is probably the most popular loop on Snow King Mountain, Jackson Hole. It has a serious climb, stunning panoramas, exhilarating down-slope riding, beautiful forests and meadows and a genuine back-country feel for much of the way. It's long enough at 12 miles and challenging enough to leave you with a sense of achievement. Take your camera!
