STRAVA Segment Link

Be sure to start your Strava app at the base area and ride into the race segment. We recommend not turning it off until you return or complete your ride. This lessens the likelihood of the segment not being recorded correctly should you start or stop the app within our race segment.

Start at the Grand Targhee Resort base area and race as fast as you can up Andy's Trail to Buffalo Soldier and on to Peaked Trail. Once you complete the race portion hike another 100 feet up the goat path to an unbelievable view of the Tetons. There are two small snow fields you'll need to hike-a-bike across during the race, this is the remnants of the winter half pipe.

The top is the end of the race course, so turn around and wind down 38 Special, to the base area or Millcreek at your leisure.
