Description / Access Information
Bullion Connector: This motorized trail provides a singletrack connection between the Croy Trailhead and Bullion Gulch Road. 

From the Croy Trailhead, this motorized trail climbs through several large banked turns and fun rollers to a saddle and major intersection of trails. The Bullion Connector Trail then heads west to climb thought open bowls and several well-built, tight switchback turns; climbing a narrow and rocky ridge before traversing into Bullion Gulch.

The Bullion Connector trail connects the Croy Trailhead to Bullion Gulch. The trailhead is located 3.7 miles west of Hailey. Look for small street sign marking Trailhead Road on the right as you head west on Croy Canyon Road. The Croy Trailhead includes a large native surface parking lot, a vault toilet, and a trailhead kiosk with maps of the trail system.

Weekly short-track mountain bike races are held at the trailhead every summer, hosted by Sun Valley Road and Dirt.

Trail development around Hailey and Bellevue has been limited by two factors: topography and private property.  The steep canyon walls are formed by the underlying sedimentary rocks of the Milligen and Wood River Formations. Where the landscape is not as steep, private ownership often prevents construction of public trail systems.

Croy Canyon contains a large amount of public property managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  Combine the rolling landscape created by the underlying Challis Volcanics with reasonable access across private land and the potential for developing new trails exists.  This potential was realized with the construction of more than fifteen-miles of short-loop, single-track trail on the north side of the drainage in 2009.

Though the new trails in the Croy Canyon network are open to all user groups (with some limitations), they were built with two-wheeled users in mind. The meandering routes and large-radius, bermed turns make riding these trails both challenging and fun.  It will take many laps to master the timing necessary to execute a perfect run.
