Photo Gallery: Hike #23 Surprise Valley

from The Day Hiker’s Guide to Sun Valley & Ketchum

This nine-mile trek will inspire outdoor evangelism. The trail is a wonderland as it strolls along Fall Creek, then up a steep forested mountainside scattered with thousands of majestic boulders and finally to the entrance of the glacially-formed Surprise Valley. Steep pitched walls rise some 2,000 vertical feet on both sides of the trail.
