Osberg's Ridge Mountain Bike to Coyote Yurt - STIO

Osberg's Ridge: A gem of a single-track trail traversing alpine basins & rocky ridges, surrounded by epic 360 degree views, just several miles north of Sun Valley, Idaho. If you know, you know.

If you can - get it during peak wildflower bloom, you will be winning!

We spent 2 days / 1 night pedaling from Baker Lake TH up to the Coyote Yurt for the evening, then a big dissent back to the valley floor for hot springs and cold beer. To traverse the high ridge trail [Osberg's] on mountain bikes with local guide service, Sun Valley Trekking, not only made the logistics of food, gear, and equip. possible; but the customer service and experience(s) completed our trip.

The first few miles of pedaling coupled with blastin' through fields of Lupine to the next basin - Mike Shrif photo.

Balancing act - Traversing rocky terrain to our lunch spot - Mike Shrif photo.

Mtn Margs = Refreshing cool down after a long day of pedaling. Yurt life. - Mike Shrif photo..

Yurts, mountain bikes, wildflowers, and good company is the ultimate combo. Try it sometime.
