About this trail
No visit to Sun Valley is complete without a trip to Bald Mountain. The world famous mountain is now open to sightseers and adventurers all summer long.


Lift ticket price provides a 3000 foot uphill ride to the top of Bald Mountain (along with your bike) and then miles of advanced mountain biking trails that bring you back to the base area. Or, just go XC if you prefer.

Review: Bald Mountain is a BIG lift assisted bike park in summer and a ski resort in winter. The altitude difference bottom to top is 3,300 feet. There are two long, intermediate, two-way singletrack trails called Cold Springs and Warm Springs. They are old-school, cross-country trails with little technical interest but the gradient is well controlled and not very steep. They are long! Warm Springs is 16 miles and Cold Springs is 13 miles long. They are often ridden in a loop by people not wanting to use the gondola and chairlift to the summit. Cold Springs and Warm Spings summit at the end of Broadway which is a two mile traverse from the top of the chairlift on a gently down-sloping trail. Lupine starts near the end of Broadway and goes about half way down the mountain where the gondola terminates and the chairlift starts. It's a one way down-slope trail. It's fast and flowing. The last half mile is sublime singletrack with perfectly formed switchbacks and nice airtime opportunities. Saddle-Up is a machine made one-way down-slope flow trail with lots of bermed corners, rollers and low take-off angle jumps. It's good but not outstanding. It joins the last half mile of Lupine for a superb finish. All the trails on Bald Mountain are "soft on hard" - lots of stones and grit on a hard sub-surface. The net effect is a kind of floaty ride as your tyres tend to skitter a bit.

Review: Long lonely climb up cold springs to top, down flow trail, back up to top, down warm springs. if you're there off-season, some trails might be closed which is disappointing, but still a blast. Hoping to go back when lifts are open.

Review: 3000 feet of free vertical elevation. That is AWESOME!
Great trails, with a leaning towards longer XC loops.
Trails are also pretty quiet (at least in early season) so that is good too. Most of the popular biking trails are separated from the hiking ones.
