Ashton-Tetonia Trail State Park
Since the first abandoned rail corridors were turned into trails in the 1960s, more than 15,000 miles of rail trails have been constructed in the U.S. The 30-miles of rail trail between Tetonia and Ashton, Idaho, on the western side of the Tetons south of Yellowstone, might be among the country’s most scenic. It being Idaho, of course there are potato fields, almost as far as the eye can see. Also, wheat fields, and stands of aspen. But it is the Tetons, their snaggly profile easily recognizable even in reverse (most images of the Tetons are taken from Jackson Hole, on their eastern side), looming in the distance that grabs your attention. The three historic trestle bridges the route crosses are just showing off. Stop in Ashton at the classic Fro-Stop Drive-In for a malted shake and burger.
