The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Roughing It in Sun Valley


3. What to Do

Elephant's Perch: the summit and the store.  

Rent a bike from Elephant's Perch (from $15), the outdoor outfitter in Ketchum. The staff will direct you to climb to the summit or stick to the flats on the Adams Gulch trails. They can also provide maps for the premier day hike to Pioneer Cabin, where rising elevation takes you past multiple vegetation zones and the occasional sheepherder.

Wade into the Big Wood River and find your fly-fishing rhythm after getting a day license and rod at Lost River Outfitters ($275 to $390 for guided day; $12.50 for license and map).
