Description / Access Information
Hidden Valley TrailThis motorized, shared-use singletrack is west of Bullion Gulch. It starts with an out-and-back leg. The loop portion of the route makes a good ride or run in either direction. Many prefer to travel it counter-clockwise to descend through the turns found in the southwest portion of the loop. Others prefer to travel the loop counter-clockwise. Doing so avoids ending the loop with a stiff climb.

The route includes many swooping turns and a rolling character that keeps you on your toes. The landscape is one of mostly open sage covered hills tilted to the south. This open and sunny orientation helps make this an early season favorite.

At one point the trail passes briefly through an Aspen grove. Here, the trail makes a series of dollar-sign $ turns before breaking back out into the region's more typical, open character. The 13 bermed turns found near the southwest side of the loop are a pleasure to climb, or descend on.

Directions: Go west from Hailey on Bullion Street/Croy Canyon Road for about 4.5 miles to Bullion Gulch Road on the right/north. (Note: Croy Canyon Road turns to gravel, then Bullion Gulch Road is on the right in another 0.3 miles.) Heading up Bullion Gulch for 1.3 miles brings you the Hidden Valley Trail on the left/west. The road is a bit wider here, so there is room to park a couple of vehicles on the west side. There is more parking available up canyon 0.3 miles on the right/east.

As mentioned above, the main access to the Hidden Valley Trail is off of Bullion Gulch Road. An alternative approach to the trail can be had by parking at the Croy Trailhead, which is 3.5 miles west of Hailey off of Croy Canyon Road. Heading west from Hailey, look for the small street sign marking Trailhead Road on the right/north. Park at the Trailhead, then take the Bullion Connector Trail to Bullion Gulch and the start of the Hidden Valley Trail.
