Route Description for Corral Creek Trail
The Corral Creek Trail is a family-friendly adventure conveniently located near Sun Valley. This lovely adventure can be enjoyed year-round, just with a pair of snowshoes in the winter months! Shared with bikers, it is important to be mindful of ruts, roots, and rocks obstructing the path when exploring. While trekking in the spring, the terrain will likely be unstable with mud, so footwear with good traction is needed! However, if you are seeking a scenic, easy-going adventure, then you have come to the right place.
Embark on your pleasant stroll along the Corral Creek Trail from the parking lot and trailhead off National Forest Development Road 51. Setting out from here, the route travels eastwardly up a small ridge with the help of switchbacks. Soon after your departure, the path will reroute you northeast, through the open meadow that offers wonderful mountain views, then beneath the tree canopy. Enjoy the shade and the break from the sun, then the route will escape into another meadow.
At this point, the route will curve eastwardly, intersecting with seasonal creeks before ultimately reaching the trail’s end. To get back to the trailhead, simply turn around and retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
