About the Area

Our trip will take place inside the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Mount Leidy Highlands.  Elevations range from 7,000-9,000 feet above sea level.  Temperatures will range from nighttime lows in the 30's to daytime highs in the mid 80's.  It is not uncommon to have a brief afternoon shower to help keep the dust down.

The Jackson Hole area is dominated by the magnificent Tetons.  Directly across the valley lies the Mount Leidy Highlands.  This area forms the northeastern edge of Jackson Hole and is drained by Spread Creek and portions of the Gros Ventre River.  The main river valleys have a network of logging roads along the lower portions;  however, the upper elevations are wilderness.  The names of several places we'll be traveling through are Rosie's Ridge, Mount Leidy, Leidy Lake and the North and South Fork of Spread Creek.  This area is the calving grounds and summer range for the prolific Gros Ventre elk herd.  Moose, mule deer, coyotes, bear and a variety of raptors inhabit the surrounding backcountry.

You may want to consider coming in a few days early or extending your stay after the trip to take in the nearby attractions.  Both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are but a short drive away as are the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming and day raft trips on the Snake River section south of Jackson.
