The Rocky Road trail is a non-motorized singletrack trail. It climbs its way to a series of rock faces along the foothills above Challis and then weaves in and out of these rock faces and scree slopes. Not for the feint of heart as there is lots of exposure to go with the loose, rocky trail, but the challenge is real and views are very rewarding.This trail is completely rideable although some of the short steep rocky sections may take a few sessions to accomplish.

Access Info

The simplest access is via the Foothills trail to the Valley trail to the Mahogany trail. The Mahogany trail crests in a saddle and the trail junction fo the Rocky Road trail is just above this (north).
