Then we returned the way we had come from highway 89 and went past to the Spring Gulch Road and followed it south back along East Gros Ventre Butte to just northwest of Jackson, then took the bike path back and around to town and home. All together we rode about 24.6 miles.
The site I used is an App on my Google Chrome book which allows one to make routes an calculate the distance traveled either by foot,bike or car.
The following are pictures I took along the way.
