Trail Overview

This is a connector trail between the Kinsey Creek ATV trail and Wolftone-Curran that's very rutted. The west side entrance to the trail is at a small creek crossing, but it's a bit difficult because the bushes are overgrown and there are small branches in the creek, it has a steep exit on loose dirt. It switchbacks up a hillside in a burn area. It looks like the locals try to keep the logs cut, but there is always potential for the new downfall of tall and thick trees since it's an extensive burn area. There will likely be a log that is uncut. It gets on top of the peak and then goes down the backside of the mountain to meet up with the Kinsey Creek ATV trail. This side of the mountain gets out of the burn area but is really rutted on a trail of decomposed granite. There are a couple of small rock ledges on the downhill as well, adding some more difficulty. The downfall and troughs make this one not as pleasant to ride compared to the many other epic trails in this system.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate trail with ruts, troughs, switchbacks, loose dirt, and potential downfall.

Access Description

The Greenhorn Trails are an extensive trail system south of Ketchum Idaho that gets a high amount of use from various recreational users including mountain bikers and horses and hiking in addition to dirt biking. There's a decent-sized parking lot at the staging area for Greenhorn Trails, that can accommodate trailers, but doesn't allow camping, and gets full even on weekdays. The trails can also be accessed off of Warm Springs Road to the north and Deer Creek Road to the south, which both have places to camp. It's an extensive system with trails of varying difficulty from easy to advanced. This area can get really hot in the summer and doesn't have much shade. This area is very well signed and maintained, but most of the area doesn't have cell service, so download your maps ahead of time.
