Wood River Trail

Lucky to live next to this trail

July, 2023 by scott728

This is a life line to our community with year around use and if you enjoy commuting it can often be a faster alternative to driving between Hailey and Ketchum especially in the summer. Ride it, walk it, skate ski it, get out of your car!!

ketchum depot

June, 2021 by aparrott58

FYI - the depot in Ketchum is the YMCA. The building no longer looks like a depot. The historical sign detailing info on the depot is behind the bus stop, hidden out of view. I found it because I was standing at the bus stop and saw the sign in the shrubbery.

just beautiful

We rode this trail for 20 miles last week. Very well maintained and smooth. It was fun to see the ski resorts from our bike. This is a great bike town.

5 Star Trail

August, 2020 by dashiver

Slight incline all the way to Sun Valley which makes it easier coming back. Once in Sun Valley the touring through the town was great. Being from Minnesota the scenery is a nice change from lakes....That’s debatable but none the less fantastic ride!

Wood River Trail

True 5 star trail

July, 2020 by resifenceinc

I was a little scared to the vertical climb. However it's so gradual I don't notice. The beauty of this area is tops. Well paved and traveled the day I rode.

Wood River Trail

Rare to find a 20-mile trail as well paved as this one

June, 2020 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

In June my brother and I rode the Wood River Trail from Ketchum to Bellevue and back using road bikes. You rarely find a 20-mile trail as well paved as this one. Historical signage along the way is fun to read. The trail avoids downtown Ketchum, and is close to several other towns' businesses if you need hydration or food. The trail is not shaded, so take hydration. The southern part can get windy.
We did not take the spur to Sun Valley; would do so next time.

Wood River Trail

Smooth as Glass and Few Crossings

June, 2020 by jacmar1

We recently visited Ketchum and road the Wood River Trail from the western edge of town to the end in Bellevue.We have ridden trails in 42 States and this one the best maintained we have experienced.Leaving Ketchum the trail is surrounded by trees and follows the river for about 3 miles.After that the landscape is more open but still a most enjoyable ride.Just a few ups and downs to keep interesting with a few crossings that are well marked for trail users and vehicle traffic.Wish this one was closer to home to enjoy on a regular basis.Do not miss if you are in the area!

Wood River Trail

Nice surface, great scenery

September, 2017 by bkel

Excellent trail in Sun Valley, Idaho. We rode about 34 miles round trip from Ketchum to Belleview on Labor Day weekend. The trail had been surfaced recently, which made it one of the nicest trails I've ridden. We started early, and it was lucky we did, because it got hot! On the way back, once you get out of Hailey, it starts to cool off, because you are riding along the river. Nice trail, very unexpected, although not sure what I was expecting from Idaho.

Wood River Trail

June Ride with Grandson

July, 2016 by oldterry

In June I rode this trail as part of my quest (now completed) to have ridden at least one bike trail in the lower 48 states. This trail was one of the best and much better than I expected. The trail was easy to ride being asphalt and flat The sceneries were. Absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this

Wood River Trail

Sets the Standard for All Rails to Trails!

July, 2015 by dcmlaw

The maintenance is outstanding. We just vacationed over the 4th of July and the trail is being repaved eliminating the freeze cracks. Bravo!

Wood River Trail

The best!

May, 2015 by marlshallwmeyer

The Wood River Trail is the spine of the Wood River Valley paralleling route 75, an Idaho scenic byway. From the northern terminus of the trail, you can continue on the shoulder of 75 to SNRA Headquarters and beyond to Galena Lodge and Galena Summit (though the last 5 miles is a steep climb). You can branch from the WRT in several directions including East Fork Road to the old mining community of Triumph, Greenhorn Gulch, Elkhorn, Warm Springs, Adams Gulch, etc. The choices are nearly infinite. Two cautions. Watch out for the tunnels: use your voice or bell or horn before entering as careless riders may be coming at you in the wrong lane. And take plenty of water. Despite the mountains, it is high desert and dehydration can be an issue.
