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.

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

Sets the Standard for All Rails to Trails!

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.

Wood River Trail

Amazing ride, run, walk or ski (in winter)

January, 2013 by scottbikefly

This trail is perfect for commuting between Hailey and Ketchum or for a casual ride. You will see hard core roadie's and casual hybrids with kids on any given day. Or skate ski in the winter. If you come to Sun Valley be sure to ride this trail round trip North or South at least once. Clean air, great views, small hills it is a perfect paved trail with many off shoots to explore or leads you to many a great mountain bike single track trail as well.

We rode this trail in August 2010 and it is wonderful. We rode one way and had a shuttle truck at the south end. It is very flat. Great ride.

Windy Valley Ride

September, 2005 by

"August 24th, 2005, we rode up hill from Hailey to Ketchum in the morning and had lunch followed by sightseeing. The ride back down hill was into the wind and more work than pleasure. Great paved path without much shade. Suggest you check wind direction and velocity before you bike here – the nature of the valley channels the wind the same direction as the trail. We didn’t head the advise Greg gave in his 3/15/04 review.
We also tried the Harriman Trail, north of Ketchum. Great for mountain bikes but not for our hybrid bikes – we ended up riding on the highway with it’s wide shoulders.

Wood River Trail

Good trail

March, 2004 by ggwbikemt

"Overall, this is a good trail to ride on. The trail features some nice Idaho mountain scenery. Local weather effects tend to give the area a northerly wind at night and in the morning and a southerly wind in the afternoon and evening. If you want a double barrel tailwind start at Ketchum in the morning and ride to Bellevue in the morning then return to Ketchum in the afternoon. "
