Description / Access Information

Kinsey-Curran Connector Trail #318: Closed due to the Beaver Creek Fire, but the Ketchum Ranger District has opened the Deer Creek drainage to cross country foot and horse travel.

Starting at the Deer Creek trailhead,the Kinsey-Curran Connector helps form a good hiking loop. Fall color on the east of the Curran Trail, and the gurgling Curran Creek make for a great walk.  The trail can be traveled in either direction, but most mountain bikers prefer to climb the switchbacks up from the Curran Gulch side. The Kinsey-Curran Connector Trail links into the Kinsey Trail, which leads down to Deer Creek Road and then the completion of the 10.7-mile loop.

Directions: Drive north from downtown Hailey to Deer Creek Road (2.8 mi).  Turn left and continue past the pavement and onto dirt to the trailhead at the end of the road (11.1 mi).
