About Galena Trails

The Galena Summer Trails are a 47-mile non-motorized single track trail network around Galena Lodge created through a partnership between BCRD, Galena Lodge and the Sawtooth NRA.  The trails are suited for all users including beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers, runners, equestrians and mountain bikers.   

Galena Trails History

In 2007, the BCRD, the operators of Galena Lodge, and other community groups such as Big Wood Backcountry Trails conceived the idea to develop a summer trail system around the Lodge to celebrate the area’s history, ecology, and provide multi-use non-motorized recreation.  The goal was to mirror the winter experience at Galena that includes activities like Nordic skiing and snowshoeing with a summer single track experience for activities like hiking, mountain biking, trail running, and equestrian.

The BCRD submitted a multi-use trails proposal based on a design by International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) to the SNRA.  The SNRA pursued an environmental assessment of the proposed project and concluded that process with a final decision in July 2013 to approve a 47 mile total system.  The non-motorized, stacked loop system is available to hikers, bikers, runners and equestrians from beginner to advanced.  Work on the trail system commenced in the fall of 2013 and completed in the summer of 2017.
