Hiking & Biking

Hiking & Biking

Known to locals as "the bike path", The Wood River Trail System is a 32 mile, world-class paved bicycle and walkway system connecting all the cities in the Wood River Valley.
The Wood River Trail follows the Big Wood River and is along a historic route on the former Union Pacific railroad right-of-way, crossing several historic bridges and providing beautiful views of the valley.
The pathway is open to biking, rollerblading, walking, running and equestrian. In the winter, the path is groomed for XC Skiing.
If you rather "head to the hills" there are several mountain trails in the Sun Valley area providing incredible scenery and varied levels of difficulty. See link below for more info and maps.
