Description Suggest an Edit

Known to locals simply as "the bike path," the Wood River Trails is a system of paved multi-use trails connecting the communities in Idaho's Wood River Valley. In summer, biking, inline skating, walking and jogging are popular trail activities. In winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers come out en masse.

With more than 30 miles of paved paths, the system offers spectacular recreational opportunities amid equally spectacular scenery. Services are available in Ketchum and Sun Valley, but you won't find fast food chains. Instead, check out one of the many good restaurants and cafes to refuel after a hardy and enjoyable workout.

Free maps and trail guides are available at the chambers of commerce, Hailey's recreation district office or at any sports store.

Parking and Trail Access

Access and parking for the Wood River Trails system is available in numerous places along the route. Check the map for specific locations.
