This short, steep hike close to town makes a great workout to squeeze into the beginning, middle, or end of your day.
Starting from the end of Fairway Road, the trail leads to the mouth of a forested canyon.
On a hot afternoon, you’ll want to start the loop by going up this canyon.
On a cool morning, however, maybe you’ll want to go the other way and tackle the switchbacks first.
Either way, this loop contains a mix of gradual inclines and steep sections.
It’s sometimes in the shade of aspens (brilliant in the fall) and tall conifers, and sometimes on sage-covered hillsides with great views over Sun Valley.
You’ll see the golf course and the town below, and the ski runs on Bald Mountain across the valley.
Along the trail are some benches to rest and take in the view.
