This trail was very pleasant for a family bike ride. It is adjacent to Jackson, not 9 miles outside of town as I read in one description. This is especially relevant if you renting bikes. Rather than needing to rent a bike rack, we easily drove city streets from the bike shop to the beginning of the Elk Refuge.
