Phillips Canyon Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Highlights: Five miles of air-gasping uphill to the top of Phillips Canyon; technically tricky and exciting ride through Phillips Canyon. Hazards: Traffic on State Highway 22; rocky segments and rough trail with roots and logs on the route through Phillips Canyon. Tread: Deteriorating pavement; singletrack, and dirt road."
--Amber Travsky, Mountain Biking Jackson Hole (Falcon Guides).
ALthough it is a rough descent, it is all easily ridable and the trail worth the trip. The climb from the old pass road is great after passing the new pass highway, there are a few clusters of aspens that are incredible. At the second trail intersection you can detour left and climb an alpine meadow for 2 miles (incredible wild-flowers but lots of FLIES--bring the DEET) before turning around at the WIlderness boarder and resuming the descent down the Canyon. At the stream there is a downed tree to cross to avoid getting your feet wet...or just point-er straight and enjoy the cooling off!
