Sidewinder Trail

Mountain Biking in Ririe
Mountain Biking icon.

Challenge yourself on this singletrack switchback trail with amazing views of Swan Valley at the top of the 800 foot climb.  It’s not too steep, but it is a continuous climb to the top. The trail is well maintained and is off limits to motorized vehicles.
