Mountain Biking

The Sawtooth Valley and nearby Sun Valley is famous for its variety of single track and dirt road mountain bike trails. Options range from the challenging epic high mountain trails of the White Cloud Mountains to our gentler valley roads. Whether you’re looking for a killer cardio, single-track trek over a high mountain pass or a gentle cruise alongside a creek on an old fire road, your ride is waiting.
Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch Biking

Trails

From the Ranch, you can start slow and easy, with the 3-mile Ranch View Loop to acquaint you with the expansive property, the mountain scenery and altitude, or venture onto the 7-mile Williams Creek Loop, for a more challenging trail that includes single track thrills as well as scenic views. You also can begin on the ranch and connect into the world famous Fisher Creek trail, an 18-mile adrenaline boost climbing 2,000’ to over 8,171’ and back down again that is a no-miss for any real mountain biker.

Expand your biking horizons even farther with a short drive to nearby trailheads in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. These options include the modest 7-mile Valley Creek Road or the awesome Nip and Tuck, Elk Mountain or Potato Mountain Loops, all with spectacular scenic views. And of course, the iconic 18-mile Fisher Creek-Williams Creek Trail, replete with single and double track, heart-stopping thrills, and breathtaking expansive views of the White Cloud and Sawtooth Mountains, beckons hard core mountain bikers.

Gear

The Ranch provides 12 Specialized Jynxsport (27.5”tire size) and Specialized Crave (29” tire size) mountain bikes ranging in size from adult extra small to extra large. The Specialized Crave bikes are built with the newer 29” tire geometry. The Specialized Jynxsports come with 27.5” tires, and are better suited to the smaller rider. All bikes have disc brakes, front shocks, platform pedals, and come equipped with pump, spare tire tube, and repair kit. We also have a wide selection of helmets. Bikes for small children are not available.

Lessons

To get you started, we offer two complimentary weekly bike clinics with an on-ranch initiation ride.
