Side-by-Side Tour Details
One of the most unique ways to see Jackson Hole and the surrounding areas is by taking a tour in a side-by-side. Zip along mountain roads and feel the adrenaline rush and freedom a side-by-side gives you when compared to an enclosed vehicle.
Starting in Jackson, your side-by-side full day tour will head north of town along the edge of the National Elk Refuge. This refuge was created to help protect the elk habitat back in 1912, and now is a sanctuary to the largest elk herd in the world.
Continuing north along the boundary of the National Elk Refuge, we will head toward the small town of Kelly. Along the river banks, keep your eyes out for moose in this section, as they are often seen here.
History of Slide Lake Landslide
Shortly after reaching Kelly, we will make our way up into the Gros Ventre Range through a steep canyon. In 1925, after weeks of continued rain and the heavy snowpack, the land gave way resulting in the world’s largest landslide. You can still clearly see where it slid all these years later. Just past the slide we will arrive at the pristine Lower Slide Lake.
Our tour continues on to Gaslight Pass and Crystal Creek and even includes a river crossing. Your side-by-side guide will show you three different breathtaking views of the Tetons on this tour (weather permitting). All three make for a picture-perfect opportunity as each has a slightly different angle of the Tetons.
Heading back towards Jackson, we’ll head out onto Antelope Flats and stop in at Molton Barn, the most photographed barn in the USA. If you have been to any tourist shop in Jackson, you will recognize this barn, as it’s the one on many postcards. Mormon Row was first established back in 1908 by John Molton, and the remaining buildings and features illustrate an early Mormon settlement.
Antelope Flats as is a great area to spot wildlife, so keep an eye out. Wildlife that can be spotted on this trip includes moose, bison, elk, antelope, fox and bald eagles. If you have any questions along the way, your experienced guide has extensive knowledge on local history, fauna and wildlife and is happy to assist.
