Eve Gulch (#146)
: This drainage was severely burned during the Castle Rock Fire, and much of the trail was re-routed late in the summer of 2009. The trail now makes several looping switchbacks up a long 1,400-foot climb and is rumored to be an excellent mountain bike ride. The trail eventually connects to an old mining road and descends the West Fork of Warm Springs Creek. Return down Warm Springs Road and climb Heidelberg Hill for a 16-mile loop.
Because of its proximity to Ketchum, concentrated network of excellent trails, and multiple access points, Adams Gulch is easily the most popular hiking and biking destination in the Wood River Valley. There are many hiking options and the trails connect to the Fox/Chocolate/Oregon trails making it possible to link together epic mountain bike rides.
The main access is at the Adams Gulch trailhead, but there are four more access points from “Hulen Way” and “Sego Lane” in the Hulen Meadows subdivision, Lake Creek, and “Wanderer’s Way” off of Warm Springs Road. Adams Gulch is a great place to explore and have fun in a relatively benign environment. All trails except for Adams Gulch Road and Eve Gulch are closed to motorized use.
