North Valley & Galena Trails
The North Valley Trails cover almost 115k of terrain north of Ketchum and Sun Valley and are mostly located in the beautiful Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The main systems include the Lake Creek trails, Billy's Bridge, North Fork Loop, the Harriman Trail, Prairie Creek Loop, and the Galena Lodge Trails. Snowshoe trails can be found along the Harriman at North Fork Loop, Billy’s Bridge and at Galena Lodge.
Made possible by the generosity of local owners in Croy Canyon, the BCRD operates another piece of trails west of Hailey, Idaho called Croy Nordic. With close to 8 km of trails and a warming yurt, this Nordic destination is wonderfully convenient from town and a great winter community destination. Lessons available from the BCRD and programs offered through the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation.
