I'd heard that Forbidden Fruit was a good flow trail and the most technically interesting of the Adams Gulch trails so I went to have a look. First I rode up the valley mainly on the Shady Side Trail (nice), then part way up Eves Gulch (climbs up through forest).
Forbidden Fruit starts with a short stiff climb but soon starts flowing down along the side of the valley. It's hand-made I think - not very wide anyway - with a fairly good surface. There are some nice bermed corners and some good but small humps and jumps. Like all flow trails you really need to ride it a few times to be able to make the most of it. It does need speed to work well and there is not a lot of room for error. It's only about a mile long.

Mostly smooth single track with some optional creek crossings. Shady side is awesome. Forbidden fruit was not my thing. Skip Lane's if you don't like the sun.

Super convenient from downtown Ketchum, this trail features a number of bridges or stream crossings. The trail is pretty gentle and smooth, with only a few mandatory rocky spots. Starts alongside the creek and then winds it's way up through sage into aspens and pine. One steep section up to a lookout point and then flowing singletrack back down.
Trails west of highway near Ketchum. Chocolate Gulch, Greenhorn, etc.

This is a great ride! Not a lot of technical aspects but not for the beginner either. "Real" singletrack much of the way. Many different options for increasing or decreasing length/difficulty. Smooth and fast.
