Summertime is trail time. Pedaling in Sun Valley means easy access to more than 30 miles of paved, car-free bike paths, plus hundreds of miles of singletrack mountain bike trails. A trip to world-famous Bald Mountain is as easy as a gondola ride; from the summit, you can stroll the meadows or challenge yourself to a full day on the trails. If you need gear to rent, Pete Lane’s Mountain Sports is ready to help, offering equipment, guided tours, rentals or just some local savvy.

First Timer's Guide To Biking
The Bald Mountain and White Clouds trails encompass very diverse landscape. It is important to understand the different terrain offered in order to use it safely alongside all other mountain guests.
What Are the Different Types of Trails?
Downhill mountain biking trails are generally rough and steep (and downhill only), made for intermediate to advanced riders. They often require body protection like kneepads and a full-face helmet with goggles due to the extreme nature of the sport.
- "Freeride" downhill trails, or "flow trails," are generally a smoother, wider riding surface, made for high speeds (identified by the orange pill symbol). They can include man-made jumps, sweeping banked corners, rollers, and berms.
- "Technical" downhill trails have a narrower and more rugged trail surface, with natural features like roots, rocks, and other elements. While they are built for slower speeds, they still require a lot of technical riding skill, control, and ability.
- Cross-country (XC) mountain biking trails often include longer point-topoint riding or loops, including climbs and descents on miles of varied terrain. These trails require more endurance, stamina, and preparation for a sustained ride.
What to Bring, Wear & Know Before You Go
- Bring: trail map, food and water, spare tube/pump/tire lever, bicycle multi-tool, extra layers (check the weather), and cell phone
- Wear: proper helmet, appropriate footwear, bike gloves, knee and elbow protection, sunscreen, and proper eyewear
- Know: Bald Mountain trails are technical & rugged (good physical condition & experience recommended), not all trails are patrolled or swept, stay off service roads, and know how to repair a flat tire
