History of the Wood River Trail

The abandoned Sun Valley line of the Union Pacific railroad was identified by a local group of citizens as the perfect location for a “rails-to-trails” conversion. On behalf of the community, the BCRD began construction of the trail in 1984 and completed it in 1991. 

In 2013, a two year levy was passed to fund the reconstruction, resurfacing, and rehabilitation of the WRT. The BCRD completed this work in the summers of 2014 and 2015, guaranteeing that the trail will be enjoyed for another 30 years.
