"Game Creek flows through a beautiful, near-level canyon in the Gros Ventre Mountains south of Jackson. Small streams snake through the lower meadow, marbled with marshes and abundant with wildflowers. This loop hike takes in the first 3.7 miles of the Game Creek Trail in the pastoral mountain valley. The trail winds through the wetland meadow while staying on dry land. The hike can be combined with the Cache Creek Trail (Hike 68) for a 1 1 .7- mile one-way shuttle."

"Game Creek won’t blow you away with its awesome beauty, but it is a wonderfully serene area with a creek, wildflowers, and wildlife. Despite being fairly close to town, you won’t find crowds. This flat, low-elevation hike along a creek is one of the earliest in the valley to melt out and also one of the last hikes to be closed down by snow. For the first 2 miles, you walk mostly up the Game Creek doubletrack. This section of the hike, an old ranching/forest service access road, is indicative of what’s to come. Jackson Hole has a lot of hikes with views that smack you in the face with their beauty."
