There are a couple of ways to drive to Sun Valley. Both require about 90 minutes.
A summer time favorite is to the north via Highway 93 past the Mackay Reservoir and then turn westbound onto the Trail Creek Road. Don’t forget your fishing pole. The road soon turns to gravel and then leads over the Trail Pass Summit and down a beautiful glacial basin and directly into Sun Valley.
The other route to Sun Valley is paved all of the way. Go south on Highway 93 to Arco, then southwest on Highway 20 past the rugged Craters of the Moon. Continue on Highway 20 past the little towns of Carey and Picabo, More fly fishing along the way at famous Silver Creek. and then north into Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley via highway 75.
