    Help me plan a summer trip to Sun Valley

    So heres the plan my family and I will be driving from Everett Washington to Sun Valley in June. We will be bringing our bikes (duh) and need ideas on where to ride and how to get there. Mostly trail, light freeriding or any epics spots.

    We will drive through Yakima and Boise so any riding spots there we would also like to do. I know of the Sawtooth mtns (as seen in Roam) and we will be staying in Ketchum for a few nights so any riding close by.

    Any recomendations would be great, bike shops with info and maps or websites to check would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Search this forum for "Stanley", "Sun Valley" and "Ketchum" and you should find a plethora of info including links and map info.

    But for starters....

    For probably the most up-to-date trail conditions:

    Ehhhh....you get the idea. Between those threads and the info in all of 'em....you should have alot of stuff covered.

    Good luck and if you need any more help, just holler!

    My inlaws live near Yakima, and the riding there is typically dry dusty foothills that are steep and non-technical. (Sounds like most of the Boise trails in August) I'd recommend you Call a couple bike shops in Yakima to get dialed in to where the "good" riding might be. If you can stop in Snoqualmie area, or White Pass, or Leavenworth, or even Twisp/Winthrop, depending on how you're crossing the mountains, great riding can be had for the taking.

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    what CBro said. stop in leavenworth or wenatchee (sp? on both). or go the northern route and ride in mazama/winthrop/twisp on the way down.

    there are some rides in the blue mountains too. hit up the trail reviews here or elsewhere for ideas.

    sun valley is super easy to find the rides. lots of major trailhead parking areas with various loop options. don't sweat it; you'll find plenty to ride.

    the sawtooth mtns. are north of sun valley. Stanley area trails. make sure you ride up there.

    like belay slave said; there are tons of threads about Sun Valley/Stanley. do a search and you'll see.

    pick up the book "Good Dirt" or adventure maps has a map of Sun Valley and Stanley.

    should be a great road trip.
