The Driggs area is a little over shadowed by the Jackson Hole area, but it provides some great places that are less crowded, but just as visually stunning.
1) South Teton Trails - Accessed from Driggs by driving past Alta, WY. This trail provides a nice mellow ascent in the Tetons away from the crowds. You will find stunning lakes and high alpine meadows along the trail.
1) Grand Targee Loops - Grand Targee resort has a large network of cross country and downhill specific trails. To get taste of the best XC trails at the Resort I suggest starting from the base area and climbing up Action Jackson to Rocky Mountain Way then turning left onto Mill Creek and then turning right on 38 Special once on 38 Special you will have a long switchback climb. At the top of the switchbacks you will come to the Peaked Trail. Follow the Peaked Trail now and include the Peaked Loops if you need more miles. You will finally descend on the Peaked trail to Andy's Trail that will take you back to the resort base area. This entire loop is just under 14 miles.
2) Mill Creek Shuttle - The Mill Creek is a classic ride in the Driggs area and is best done as a shuttle. You will start the ride at the Grand Targee Resort and climb up Andy's Trail nd then descend Rocky Mountain Way to Mill Creek. There is defiantly some climbing on this ride, but fast riders can complete the ride in under and hour. On the resort property there will be a sign for the Mill Creek Trail that you will follow, but once on Forest Service land it will say Papoose Creek. Don't worry Papoose Creek will become Mill Creek just stay on the main trail and follow the map. There is one right hand turn, but just stay to the left.
