Snowmobile Directions from Togwotee Snowmobile Parking Lot #1.
Faster on Trail Access – Best for Touring+ Crossover Snowmobiles
Suggested Route #1 : Black Arrows Continental Divide Loop 42 Total Trail Miles
Access to the (CD) trail system begins directly out of parking lot #1. There will be a temporary gate across the trail system to keep vehicles from entering the snowmobile trail. Ride the snowmobile past the gate heading up hill. 300ft up the (CD) trail system on your left hand side you will see the (CDA) trail system intersection. I typically take this trail on my way back to the truck and trailer. Continue straight down the (CD) trail.
Roughly 1.5 miles down the (CD) trail you will have a nice Teton Overlook Viewpoint on your right hand side. The next intersection you will pass will be the (D) trail coming in on your left hand side. Continue around the bend on the (CD) trail. 2 miles down the trail you will see an open meadow to your right. This is the (O) trail intersection. The O trail is not recommended. Please continue straight on the (CD) trail for another 3 miles.
The next intersection you will come to will be the (K) trail on your right hand side heading down a hill. We suggest staying to the left in this intersection and continuing down the (CD) trail. 1.2 miles later on your left hand side you will see the (CDA) trail intersection. Make a mental note as this is a good short cut back to parking lot #1. We suggest you take this on your way back. Continue down the (CD) trail another 1.4 miles until you reach the (V) intersection on your right hand side. Take the right onto the (V) trail. You will head down the (V) trail for 9.8 miles until you see the (K) trail intersection on your right hand side. Continue straight another 1.1 miles until you ride down a hill and intersect the (CD) trail again. Turn left. 1 Mile up you will see the X trail intersection coming in from you right hand side. Continue straight on the (CD) trail system for 5.4 miles. Here you will come across the (I) and (CD) trail intersection.
If you want to head up to Togwotee lodge continue on the (CD) another 1.5 miles. If you head to the lodge you have the choice to cross the road or you can continue down the trail another .5 mile once you see the lodge and it will take you to a tunnel that runs under the road and leads you to a parking lot. Backtrack the .5 miles on the trail past the parking lot and it will dead end you into the lodge. Snowmobile parking can be found on the far right hand side of the parking lot closest to the Red Fox Saloon.
If you want to skip the lodge and head back to the parking area take the left onto the the (I) trail instead of continuing straight on the (CD). 2.4 miles down the (I) trail you will intersect with the (CD) trail system again. Continue 5.4 miles down the (CD) trail. You will pass the (V) intersection on your left that you took earlier. Continue 1.4 miles down and you will see the (CDA) trail come in from your right. We suggest taking the right onto the (CDA) trail. You are more than welcome to just continue straight down the CD and backtrack the trail system back to the parking lot. If you take the (CDA) trail you will continue 3.6 miles until you hit the (CDA) and (D) trail intersection (D trail continues straight and is typically not groomed) . Take a right and continue on the (CDA) trail for 2.4 miles until you reach the (CD) trail. Take a right on the (CD) trail and in 300 yards you are back to your starting point!
