Teton FreeRiders


Teton FreeRiders created the first user-specific trail network in the United States Forest Service system designing and constructing the entire gravity mountain bike trail system in Teton County, WY, primarily on Teton Pass. We fill the labor void with over two thousand hours of trail building annually via our professional trail crew. We have also made significant contributions to the Greater Snow King Area, Munger Mountain Trail Network, and the Phillip’s Trail Network.

Whether building some of the best trails and features on public land in the world or fighting for your rights as a mountain biker, TFR works tirelessly to ensure you have access to trails that don't suck! 

Our trails were the first legal downhill-specific bicycle trails on US Forest Service land in the country. Today, they serve as a model for other groups nationwide looking to provide their local community an opportunity to recreate and enrich their lives. 

We work hand in hand with government agencies, other local non-profits, and local businesses to keep these trails alive and thriving. We are an all-volunteer-driven non-profit that wants to make sure that the Tetons have the best mountain bike trails possible. 

TFR is here for you and your trails. Please give us your support during the 2023 Old Bill's Fun Run! Follow the link in our bio now!

And now a word from our head trail builder, Harlan.
"Hey, Teton Pass riders. How many of the dozens of downed trees have you come across while riding the pass this year? Want to keep it that way? Then please donate to Teton Freeriders through Old Bill’s by this Friday 5pm to have your donation boosted through the matching fund. Help keep our trail crew available to check the trails after every wind event."

This is literally what we do with every dime that is donated to Teton FreeRiders. You have until 5 pm this Friday to make your donations go even further with the match through Old Bill’s Fun Run. Go to the link in our bio to make your mark on Teton Pass!
Please remember us during Old Bill's this year and make a donation! 
We don't just build jumps and trails. We build lifelong friendships. We build community. We build imaginations. 
When we first built the trails on Teton Pass, we just wanted a place to ride. We didn't realize that we would end up creating a place that brought our local cycling community together in an extraordinary way. 
Riding on Teton Pass is where we have built our strongest relationships and where so many members of our community have done the same through their shared experiences. That's why keeping this unique local asset alive, and thriving is essential. 
Help us keep building the trails that weave our community's fabric by donating to Teton FreeRiders through Old Bill's Fun Run. Your donations are matched, meaning more berms, jumps, and amazing trails for you and your friends.

Teton FreeRiders


Jackson Hole, Wyoming Trail Riders & Builders

Our Mission: To enrich the Teton experience through the creation and care of exceptional trails.

The United States Forest Service was given a grant (The Gas Grant) to be applied to the trail system in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. This opened the door to the first “user-specific” trail system in the country. There was enough money for everything but labor. The BTNF would only approve trails sponsored by a local business or organization, leading to the birth of The Teton FreeRiders.

Due to the increasing numbers of residents and tourists along with the rapidly growing popularity of trail-related activities issues arose exponentially.  User conflicts increased among mountain bikers, horseback riders, trail runners, hikers & dog walkers. Trail erosion and degradation occurred faster than it could be repaired and maintained.  These primary issues spurred a public outcry for a solution.

In October 2004, we became incorporated and began working in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service. The Teton FreeRiders fill the labor void with thousands of hours of paid labor. The U.S.F.S. holds TFR responsible for trail design, signage, safety, and education.
