Wild trail on jackson ?

First day driving around we stop in what looks a trail through the wild , It was an awesome place with a frozen river running next to the trail into a forest and mountain , we walk for a long time , took lots of beautiful pics , meet locals , most with dogs on the way . Not many tourists .

We came back cause was getting darker and we don't know the place , also most people where already leaving .

Now looking info in google earth I found the trail is huge , we walk maybe just a mile or two

Could anyone tell me what is this trail , how long is it , how safe , I would like to spend more time there next time

It was my first snowy wild place so it keep a special place on my mind

If you can give me directions to this trail from Jackson, maybe I can figure out where you were. Since there were dogs on the trail, we know it was outside the national park.

Here's a map that will show you where the trail is. Cache Creek is a favorite trails for locals and has easy access from the southeast end of Jackson. http://www.snowking.com/img/SKTrailMap.pdf

Here an interesting development about the Cache Creek Trail.

In past years, the trail has sometimes been closed due to grizzly bear activity.

Funny how we people from big cities don't believe that you can find dangerous wildlife on this places .

My wife was rushing me to came back cause it was getting dark and I was so impress I just want to continue exploring , she was scare cause we can find our self in the dark with mountain lions or even bears , I said come on this is safe , it is a trail for people , what can happen ...

Thats how accidents happen .

I will be more careful next time
