Shadow Mountain

Average Rating:    (4.14 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Follow the dirt road up Shadow Mtn. for about 3 miles. This is a mellow but steady climb. Once you appear to be on top of Shadow Mtn., look for a single track off to the left. This trail splits a couple of times, but all trails lead to the bottom. Stick to the leftmost trails for the best ride. Once at the bottom, take the fire road to the left to get back to the parking area.

Summary:
Based on the description of the ride, it sounds awesome!
Unfortunately, if you start with the GPS coords provided on this page (43.73178613409055, -110.59743404388428) you won't be riding this ride...

The ride we did was up and down the ATV trails in the area West of the provided GPS coords. It's still fun, just super loose and with a lot of ATVs.

The ride described would start way south, closer to 43°42'13.55"N, 110°37'21.44"W. I found a descent map on a different site which better follows the description:

Recommended Route:
Follow the directions not the GPS coords provided, or use mine :)

The new coords work! Ride up ~3.5m (~1400ft) up Shadow Mountain Road, then take an obvious left onto the singletrack. We keep left on the way down, and it dumps you out on the access road.

Summary:
Shadow Mountain is an extremely fun and quick ride. You do not need to shuttle to the top, it's a fairly easy ride to the top on a fire road. Any time the climb is on a fire road you shouldn't need to shuttle. After reaching the top you will see the single track to your left, however if you continue on another quarter mile on your right is a fire tower that is fun to check out. The downhill is fun, but pretty sandy, so watch those fast turns. Once at the bottom you get on a two rut that will take you right back to where you started. The entire trail is in national forest, so you can take your dog, which is a must. Enjoy

Recommended Route:
Same as everyone else. Park at campground, ride up fire road to the top, single track on left.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Get the biking guide called "The Book". It has all the area trails in it.

Summary:
This trail is a workout. The steady climb never seems to end. If you are from sea level like our group it will be painful. The downhill was good, reminded us of our local dusty sandy trails here in Florida, just a little steeper. The trail had to be done though it was like a right of passage.

Summary:
It would be a waste of time if you shuttled the ascent since that's where the majority of your ride comes from. . .the downhill only takes about 10-15 minutes. I'd recommend that you do it twice if you're looking for a workout, once if you're out of shape and don't mind being that way. The downhill singletrack is way fun with a lot of different terrain incorporated into it.

Recommended Route:
Like everyone else mentioned, park at the camping site, ride up the fireroad, and then left near the top.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
check out "The Book" for the other trail with good descriptions. ..mostly good, I've gotten lost on one of them.

Summary:
My wife & I rode this trail when we were in Jackson in June, 2000. Being from the southeast, the hills (and altitude) took a bit of adjustment, but this trail was well worth taking! I enjoyed the steady grind to the summit.. Only to be presented with supreme singletrack nirvana on the descent. I plan on riding this trail again next year.
