Jackson Hole, WY

A Comprehensive Guide to the Best Places to Run in Jackson Hole

The area around Jackson is a recreational mecca and a popular destination in all seasons. Jackson Hole ski resort is famous, and the historic town of Jackson is the gateway to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. There are great opportunities for running in Jackson Hole, from quiet roads passing through farmlands and an extensive multi-use trail system.

For this guide, we’ve created posts for the best in a few categories: best road running options in the area, some of our favorite paths, some ‘runnable’ sections of Grand Teton National Park, and some routes in and near the town of Jackson and Teton Village.

A car is almost essential in this area given the vast geography. There are seasonal shuttles that run along between town and some of the resort areas. Two quick other notes: Some trails are NOT maintained in winter. Also, when running on some of the off-road trails, bears are a serious issue — be prepared, and respect the “do not run” signs.
