The Roundhouse Connector Trail

Premiering this July, the new Roundhouse Connector Trail will be a great way to enjoy the spectacular views of Sun Valley and the Pioneer Mountains as well as a perfect opportunity to grab some lunch at the historic Roundhouse Restaurant.

This trail directly connects the Roundhouse Restaurant to the Bald Mountain Trail, which starts at River Run Plaza.  As you hike up the Bald Mountain Trail, approximately 3.4 miles on the second switch back of Lower College, you will find the start of the Roundhouse Connector Trail.   This trail is a 0.6-mile hike, traversing its way to the Roundhouse Restaurant and has a gradual grade for all levels of hikers to enjoy.  Traveling through the giant wilderness, you will experience some of the oldest and largest trees on Bald Mountain, truly a spectacular site. This trail leads you right to the Historic Roundhouse Restaurant and the Roundhouse gondola. At this point, you can take advantage of lunch on the deck to refuel or a scenic ride down our world-class gondola.

With its breathtaking views, the brand new Roundhouse Connector Trail is sure to be a hit.
