While some of the trail access losses near Sun Valley, Idaho have been well-publicized, the riding closer to the towns of Sun Valley and Ketchum continues to get better and better. According to Ray Gadd of Visit Sun Valley, “Sun Valley offers in excess of 400 miles singletrack within area and upwards of 700 miles if you factor in the surrounding reaches.” While that’s a ton of mileage, development continues in the area, both for classic trail riding and downhilling at the resort.

Mountain bikers can take advantage of the well-developed infrastructure thanks to Sun Valley’s storied history as a downhill skiing destination, with tons of restaurants, bike shops, and at least three breweries.

Must-ride trails include Greenhorn Gulch/Imperial Gulch, Adam’s Gulch Loop, and Fox Creek to Chocolate Gulch.

      Yeah, Green Mountain Trails in Pittsfield is awesome!

    I’m sure they’re all great, but I feel like the midwest and east coast are left out a lot.

    Don’t know the the “Ten Best”, but I’d sure be happy to ride that list!

    The Midwest and East do have great places, but sorry folks, nothing beats the West.

    Santa Cruz? Who forgot this little gem. The Kern River Valley? Another nugget

    I still say the best trails are the ones you ride every day (Near where you live)
