Rating

This popular mountain bike loop starts in Jackson and winds southeast for 2.5 miles to the Cache Creek trailhead. From here, you’ll ride up Cache Creek Canyon on a wide, dirt and gravel trail that narrows for a steep grind to a breezy saddle. At mile 4.3, descend southwest on cruisy singletrack that parallels Game Creek, crossing grassy hillsides dotted with tall rock pinnacles and Indian paintbrush. The final 7.7 miles are an easy spin back to Jackson on a paved bike path with views of open farmland, kettle ponds, and distant mountains.
