Dog Hike in Sun Valley, Idaho:

Adams Gultch Trail-

This trailhead is accessed just north of Ketchum off the west side of Hwy 75 along Forest road #141. There are a network of inter-locking trails here, so you have your pick of either a shorter or longer route. There are crazy gorgeous wildflower meadows-top notch trail!

Fox Creek Trail

map - Directions: Drive north on Highway 75 to the Fox Creek access sign (5.8 mi). Follow the road to the trailhead loop parking and picnic area (.3 mi).

Dog Hike in Sun Valley, Idaho:

Fox Creek Trail

The trailhead is accessed off the west side of Hwy 75 from Fox Creek access sign. Becky and I took a beautiful ~6 mile loop that ran along the river and looped back up a scenic hillside. Although a little longer than Adams Gultch this hike was a little easier (elevation-wise) and equally beautiful. This trail is popular with mountain bikers too.   The loop is a great ONE-WAY and only ONE-WAY, counter-clockwise mountain bike ride.

Proctor Mountain Trail

Dog Hike in Sun Valley, Idaho:

Proctor Mountain Trail

This is a lesser-used trail on the east side of town towards Sun Valley. The trailhead is accessed from the end of Fairway Road (park at the little pull-out and hike from there). ~4 mile loop up the mountain and back down the other side. It’s a little more barren and not quite as wildflower-crazy here (compared to Adams Gultch or Fox Creek), but you’ll some lovely views and you’ll (very likely) have it all to yourself.

Norton Lakes Trail

Dog Hike in Sun Valley, Idaho:

Norton Lakes Trail

Hike a loop of spectacular high alpine lakes without driving over the pass! This is your spot! It’s a 22-mile drive to get there, half of which is on dirt roads (take Hwy 75 ~15 miles north of Ketchum onto Baker Creek Road (FR 162). Follow FR 162 for 5.9 miles to FR 170. Drive another 1.3 miles to the trailhead), but it is SO worth the effort. Do a quick ~4-mile out-and-back to Norton Lake or do the whole ~7 mile loop around all 3 lakes. What a trail!
