Take a bike ride to Galena Lodge on Sunday

Sample new trails at the lodge

     Join the cycling community and the Friends of Galena for the end-of- the-season Boulder Bike Tour on Sunday, Sept. 14. And do it either on a mountain bike or a road bike.

     Mountain bikers will meet at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters eight miles north of Ketchum for the ride up on the Harriman Trail.

     Road bikers will meet at Ketchum Town Square at 10 a.m. Sunday for a casual ride up to Galena Lodge 23 miles north of Ketchum.

     It is the lodge’s summer season closing day. Galena Lodge plans to re-open for winter season Nov. 22.

     Galena Lodge proprietor Erin Zell said there will be an aid station at Baker Creek and a shuttle back down to town for those who might need it.

     Zell said, “This is a free, fun event and open to everyone. Lunch is $10 for the buffet and there will be specials on drinks and merchandise. Bruce Innes will provide live music from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.”

     She added, “Come up and check out the seven miles of new summer trails that have just opened for both hiking and mountain biking.”

     In a press release Tuesday, the Blaine County Recreation District stated, “We have successfully constructed, completed and opened over seven miles of trail around Galena Lodge this summer as part of the first-phase of the three-phase, three-year project.

     “The trails are great and suited for all users including beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers, runners, equestrians and mountain bikers.”
