Oxbow Bend: Snake River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Oxbow Bend is a scenic section of the Snake River that is named after the U-shaped collar of an ox. The slow-moving, crescentshaped bend, located near Jackson Lake Junction, is a superb habitat for moose, elk, beaver, muskrat, and a wide variety of waterfowl.

The river curves around the northern flank of Signal Mountain near its outlet from Jackson Lake. Mount Moran, a pinnacle peak of the Teton Range, dominates the landscape. The craggy Teton peaks reach as high as 13,770 feet, forming a bony ridge through Wyoming along the Continental Divide. Fronting the Teton Range lies the twisting and curving Snake River, winding its way down the Jackson Hole Valley."
