Why should I drive Fall Creek Road?
The Fall Creek Road provides easy access to primitive camping areas, fishing access, and trails that accommodate hikers, mountain bikers, ATVs, and dirt bikes.
- Fishing: Most of the Snake River is inaccessible from Fall Creek Road due to private land and ranches. There are only a couple spots where you can access the river banks (watch for signs).
- Mosquito Creek: Don't let the name fool you. There are as many mosquitoes here as anywhere else in Jackson. The Mosquito Creek Area features 12 miles of designated forest service roads for ATVs and motorcycles.
- Munger Mountain Single-Track: The Munger Mountain Trailhead offers access to 17 miles of single-track trail for motorcycles, mountain bikes, and horseback riding. After the heat of the summer arrives, it's not worth mountain biking as the dust can become unbearable.
- Camping: There are no official campgrounds, but dispersed camping is allowed in the Mosquito Creek area.
Where does the road begin and end?
Starting in Wilson Wyoming turn south onto Fall Creek Road. The road is paved for the first 12 miles and then turns to a well maintained dirt road for the last 6 miles. You'll run into Highway 89/26 at the Snake River Canyon. Turn left to head to Hoback Junction and then north to Jackson. Turn right to head down the canyon to Alpine Wyoming and Star Valley.
How long does it take to drive?
It really depends on what you want to do along the way. But if you are to just drive straight through it will take about an hour to get from Wilson to the Snake River Canyon. A round trip back to Wilson via Jackson takes a total of 1.5 hours.
