Overview

Curly's loop is a nice quick loop ride with a super fun and fast descent. It's a relatively low traffic trail but a must ride for the avid mountain biker.

Description

Curly's trail loop begins off of Baker Creek road about 12 miles north of Ketchum. Park on the east side of 75 and ride over to Baker Creek road. Head West on Baker Creek road and follow the gradual road with stunning views. Turn left on to the East Fork of Baker Creek, Road 168 and begin the climbing. This climb is relatively gradual but has a few spots of steeper gradients. Follow through a variety of zones until the road begins to traverse the hillside opening up views in all directions.

A small pull out on the left side is a nice place for a quick snack before beginning the singletrack. Turn left on to the Curly's Trail and begin the rolling downhill. The beginning has some pedaling bits but keep your speed and you'll be rewarded. Overall, it's not a super technical trail, but very fun and flowy with a couple tight and rutted sections.

Did the loop from my campsite in Prairie Creek. Quite a bit of road but worth it for that descent! Didn't see a single person on the trail. 22mi — 3h 31m

Curly's the 3 mile singletrack is great. However climbing up fire roads for 10 miles to ride only 3 miles of great singletrack was a huge disappointment for me. If I am going to ride that long it has to have more trail than this. This loop is pretty much a fire road loop and sorry but the Curly's singletrack is not worth the climb. For the amount of time in the saddle I want more singletrack! Jul 5, 2017
