Directions, Parking, & Regulations
To access, follow Highway 22 up Teton Pass. Park in the lot directly across Phillips access road. The trail begins at the kiosk on the southern side of the parking lot. Descend the mile-long downhill until you reach Old Pass Road near Crater Lake.
From here, either climb back up—riding up Old Pass Road as Jimmy's Mom is a downhill-only trail—and do it again, or descend to the Parallel Trail.
