Buttery smooth single track combines with a partially burned forest to make an epic flow ride close to Sun Valley.

Park at the Trail Creek trailhead 2.5 miles north of Sun Valley. Pedal north and cross a wooden bridge over Trail Creek. Climb onto the bench and bike straight across toward the burned trees. Turn left onto signed Corral Creek Trail #325.

Nearly all of the 600 feet of climbing is done on the way out. Stop to catch your breath while admiring the views of the Pioneer Mountains. The trail terminates at a little-used corral in an open field. Have a snack and turn around - it's time to flow.

The mostly downhill return trip is a windy roller coaster through forests and sage. Keep an eye out for cyclists climbing from the other direction and give them the right of way.

Craving a beer after your ride? Get an order of tater tots (the best in town) and soak up the sun on the deck at the Sawtooth Brewery in Ketchum. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Super Flowy And Great Views!

This trail is an amazing intermediate trail! Other than the beginning there's not too much elevation gain which lets you really enjoy the ride. Great downhill on the way back and super flowy! Goes in and out of forest and meadows plus great mountain views
