#1 – Tin Cup Pass
Nope it’s not spring time in the Tetons yet! BUT it won’t be long now before you can saddle up for an Idaho Horseback Ride.
In the meantime, we’ll be sharing blogs on our top 5 favorite Idaho Horseback Rides, as we start planning for another spectacular summer in the Tetons. We hope you’ll check back to see them all.
The first of our favorite rides is Tin Cup Pass. The trail begins from the North Leigh trail head along Tin Cup Creek. As we cross the open meadows, you’ll want to stop and admire breathtaking views of Beard’s Mountain and the Big Hole Mountain Range which is on the west side of the Teton Range or Teton Valley, Idaho. At our highest point, we will enjoy a relaxing picnic in the cool shade of a mature fir tree while gazing upon one of the most panoramic views of the Tetons offered.
After lunch an option might be to walk to the top of Green Mountain viewing all the high mountain lakes of this area. This is not a loop ride and very suitable for almost all riding abilities. Learn more about the Idaho’s Tin Cup Ride here. Yep….this is one of the views! Really awesome!
Kevin and I start taking the Tin Cup extended day ride around the 1st week of July. It differs each year depending on how much snow is left in the high country. The wildflowers can be so awesome!
