“A flat trail on the gravel road on top of the Snake River dike.”— J R
The path is open to walkers, skate skiers, fat bikes, and even horses. Everyone seems to get along and the road is wide enough to share with other users. This is one of a few trails in Teton County open to dogs—so if you don't like dogs, probably not your best option. Most of the furry fellows are off-leash. Dog owners are generally good about picking up after their dogs.
There is virtually no elevation gain along the entire length of the road. The only toilet facilities are pit toilets at the parking lot. The pathway can also be accessed from the west side of the river via a pedestrian bridge, but parking in the winter is only available on the west side in the Stilson Lot off Highway 22.
