Spectacular scenery, nature, wildflowers, outdoor fitness, solitude, or a dip in crisp alpine waters…Sun Valley Mountain Guides (SVMG) can take you there. Our guides are intimately familiar with the myriad of pathways and adventures in our nearby forests. We’re blessed with countless trailheads that allow us to get you ‘out and back’ in time for outdoor dining, music in the streets, art-walks… everything Sun Valley offers in summer.
Three distinctive sub-ranges of the Idaho Rockies frame the Wood River Valley. The Smoky Mountains are the most ‘bike & horse trail friendly’ with a vast network of natural trails and wooded glades. The Pioneers & the Boulders feature dramatic and photogenic alpine peaks, glacial cirques, lakes and wildflowers – paradise for hikers.
