Black Canyon Professional Reviews and Guides
"Highlights: Nine miles of air-gasping uphill with six switchbacks followed by nearly 8 miles of steep downhill. Hazards: Traffic on State Highway 22; rocky segments and rough trail in Black Canyon. Tread: Deteriorating pavement, singletrack, and dirt road."
--Amber Travsky, Mountain Biking Jackson Hole (Falcon Guides).
"Black Canyon is a stream-fed, forested canyon that resides on the south side of Teton Pass. The canyon is located at the head of the Snake River Range in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The Black Canyon Trail stretches 4 miles through a lush, towering forest, from the Mount Elly overlook to Sawmill Meadows near the Trail Creek trailhead. The path parallels the waterway through a mix of Douglas fir, limber pine, subalpine fir, and aspen."
