Eastern leg is mostly uphill and moderately techical. Great view of canyon. Western leg is easy downhill. Loop near start is not accurate. No loop there. That trail goes somewhere else according to hikers that are familar.

Did this trail on mountain bikes with my 11yo. The autumnal colors were stunning on a gorgeous day. The trail was somewhat challenging at times (some fallen trees on the way back through the forest path), but we will definitely do this one again!

This was a beautiful, flat walk/hike in the woods near a stream. The fall colors were just starting. It’s also a mountain bike trail. This would be a great choice for young kids too.

We hiked the Shadyside/Sunnyside loop part of Adam’s Gulch area. Super close to Ketchum. By the book, about 3.3 miles of a little up and down. Nothing overly strenuous at all - I would say accessible for most people. I can see where it would be a nice easy/moderate mtn bike ride as well, and we did see several people doing this. Note: if you go hike later on a summer day (late AM/PM), start at the trail sign and do the Sunnyside part of the trail first. It will take you out heading west with the mountain on your right with nice picture ops. It will hairpin in about 1.5 miles after going over a creek and then head east through pine forest. The shade will be welcome if it’s hot. You can take side trails, and we did hike up one to a viewpoint overlook Ketchum that was nice. Wear suitable shoes with grip. Overall, a nice, easy hike. Would be fun to bike it. You can make this as long as you want by taking the various side trails.

Beautiful views! Can go for a short loop or long depending on what you’re feeling. Multiple trails available. We went long and ended up going 10miles. Parking lot was packed, but we didn’t see all that many people on the trail which was nice.

I found it easy. There was plenty of shady areas and the creek running through the trail so plenty of water for my dog.
