Teton FreeDom Riders

HOWDY PARDNER

The Teton Freedom Riders fill the labor void with thousands of hours of trail building annually via individual efforts.  Our annual events including the Teton “Pass Bash” which provides the best opportunity for riders to come hang-out, go for a ride, and learn more about what is happening for the current season.

GET INVOLVED

Volunteer

We don't do trail days, we hire pro trail builders and that takes money. Would you like to help with donation and advocacy events? We need support to go out and maintain the jumps, trails, and features that make our trails world class. Add your email and we'll give you a shoulder tap to get in the game.

Old Bills Fun Run

September 8, 2018
This is our most important day of the year. Frankly, Old Bill's Fun Run matches every single cent of your contribution to TFR. We know finding TFR on their website sucks, but it's worth every single dollar that goes right back into our world class trails!

WHO WE ARE

Jackson Hole, Wyoming Trail Riders & Builders

The mission of the Teton Freedom Riders is to coordinate the growth of mountain biking in the greater Teton County, Wyoming area through sustainable trail construction, maintenance, advancement and safety.

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 the labor.  The BTNF would only approve trails that were sponsored by a local business or organization; this lead to the birth of The Teton Freedom Riders.

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 amongst mountain bikers, horseback riders, trail runners, hikers & dog walkers. Trail erosion and degradation was occurring 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 begun working in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service.  The Teton Freedom Riders fill the labor void with thousands of hours of volunteer labor via individual efforts and organized “Dig-Days.”   The U.S.F.S. holds TFR responsible for trail design, signage, safety & education.   

Since our inception a strong partnership formed between the Teton Freedom Riders, the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Friends of Pathways.  Each member of this triad provides a niche skill set which generates a synergy that has a direct impact on the community.  It is this triad which makes our progressive trail system possible.
