Description / Access Information
Forbidden Fruit: The first one-way, mountain bike-only, trail in the Ketchum Ranger District.  This trail starts from lower Eve's Gulch. A quick extra 300 ft. of climbing puts you at the top of a 'flow' trail descent with a few bermed turns and multiple roller sections with straight sight lines that allow you to test your test your appetite for air!

The Forbidden Fruit Trail was proposed in 2010 and built in 2011 as a result of collaboration between the Ketchum Ranger District and the Wood River Bicycle Coalition.  The project was largely funded by a recreational grant from the USFS and the fundraising efforts of the Wood River Bicycle Coalition.  This trail is a shining example of those collaborative efforts and demonstrates just how effective they can be in getting a project done quickly that meets the needs of the users.

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.
