Mountain Biking Rocky Peak Via Spooky Trail

****   Add a review
#40 of 303 mountain bike trails in Idaho
#5,682 in the world

You will start up Spooky trail which is the only trail in the parking area.
There is a trail junction on your left about 1.2-1.5 just keep going straight.
At about 2.6 from TH you'll come to another signed trail junction. Go right.
After this there will be some big steep climbs where you will probably have
to walk. The first .3 miles brings you to the Big Hole Crest Trail junction (no
sign). Go right over the cattle guard then right along the fence. There is
more climbing involved followed by some downhill. You will encounter
another trail junction (Drake Creek trail #238) go right not down Drake
Creek. This brings you to yet another big climb. The view from top lets you
see the Grand Teton and into Star Valley. Bring a camera. Head down the
Rocky Peak trail (230) for an insanely fast rocky descent. There was a trail
splinter part way down go left. Trail drops you out onto the highway across
from your car. You can do this as a loop if you want to ride the 3 miles back
up the highway with it's narrow shoulder.

    Little bit of a drive to get to this one, but it's worth it. Small hike-a-bike over some larger rocks before the first river crossing. And be on the lookout for stinging nettle near this river crossing, as well. If you can avoid touching it, or know you don't react, you'll be fine.
    Plenty of other river crossings of varying depth to keep the ride fun and you cool on hot days. You will meet up with an ATV trail before you hook back up with the singletrack, but it has a lot of little rollers perfect for going fast and catching a little air off. Overall, an excellent trail!

    The downhill into Red Creek and Red Creek section more than make up for any climbing you had to do. Scenery is amazing throughout out the trail. Moose and bear are in the area as well. Was about 2-3 hours total for me on the ride. The return to your car on Spooky is an awesome downhill ride in itself.

    This trail has some real uphill to it. Lots of hiking for me. However the downhill on Rocky Peak was made for a FS 29er. You can absolutely just open it up and let the bike eat up the rocks. If you're not on a 29 you'll have to go a little slower. The downhill was named Rocky peak for a reason. Lots of large fist sized and bigger rocks throughout the downhill. High ratings if you are on a good fs 29er bike otherwise you won't have as much fun.
