This 14.4-mile loop starts from the trailhead on Fish Run Road, just north of Wilson. You’ll earn your turns by climbing gradually for the first 8 miles or so to a maximum elevation of 8,427 feet. Throughout the entire ride you’ll gain just shy of 2,500 feet of elevation.
After mile 10, you’ll begin to reap the rewards of your effort as you begin the technical 4-mile descent back down to the trailhead on Phillip’s Canyon trail. This video from Yeti Cycles gives you a little bit of perspective on the riding in the Jackson area.
