The Snake River Northeast Dike follows the Snake River upstream along a road closed to vehicles. The dikes were built by the Army Corps of Engineers beginning in the 1 950s to stop the flooding and erosion of adjacent pasture lands. The man-made rock and dirt berms border both sides of the Snake River, all the way from the Jackson Hole airport to South Park. The levee is a popular year-around hiking, biking, and cross country ski route that is also perfect for dogs, especially those that love the water. The hike begins at Emily’s Pond, an eleven-acre public park donated by Emily Stevens as a preserved habitat for moose, deer, and waterfowl.
