Description

One of the best descents in the Wood River Valley. Fun high speed trail with many sweeping turns and wide open sections. Can be ridden as an out and back or a long epic loop from the Greenhorn trailhead.

Directions: From downtown Ketchum, bear left onto Warm Springs Road and follow it to the end of the pavement (4.8 mi). Stay on the main dirt road to the sign for Red Warrior just past Frenchmans Hot Springs (6.1 mi).
