Mosquito Creek to Mike Sell and back


Recommended Posts

WY to ID and back to WY over Teton Pass. Climbing the pass once is hard. Twice in one day is really hard.

About 100' into the ride we had our first creek crossing. My friend balanced on a log and I decided to ride it. One of us had dry feet for the rest of the ride.

We did a lot of pushing.

Another crossing. They are building a new bridge. We took the old makeshift bridge, a plank of particle board disintegrating into the creek.

Is that just a mix of hiking/single track that goes up and over Teton Pass? Or is it a more "obvious" route? Looks like the bike are propped against a signpost, so some directions at least? Looking at Caltopo, it looks like Mosquito is a little south of the highway over the pass.  Do you drive or ride out to the trailhead for that?

I remember driving over the pass when we left Yellowstone from the west exit and came down through Idaho and back to Jackson Hole using the pass.

It's hiking/singletrack/horseback trail. Really old school with almost no switchbacks. It's mostly unmarked. I think we saw two signs. We were close to the highway near the top because I could hear cars. When we came back over the pass from Idaho, we rode the highway to the top of the pass, then jumped on powerline jumps.

We drove to the trailhead down a gnarly rutted road. My little Subaru kicked ass.
