Hike, Mountain Bike, and Sled

Right on the edges of town outside of the Hidden Valley subdivision, you'll find this fun little set of trails that's pretty good for mountain bikes. It is mostly a dirt bike playground but there's plenty that has mountain bike crossover as well as a mountain bike specific singletrack. There's an old road that heads up through the gully and tons of off-shoot dirt bike trails up the sides. There is no shortage of gap jumps, it's just a matter of choosing and having enough speed. Again, most of these are intended for dirt bikes. The old road is pretty washed out and pretty chunky so it makes for a little more technical uphill climb. Climb all the way to the top and you'll get a great view of Hidden Valley with the farms to your back. You could bomb back down the road from there or take the single track further down off the East end of the road.

Hidden Valley Singletrack is a tight trail with tight corners and sagebrush closing it in even more. It's pretty rocky and has a couple small drops/rock-rolls. Janky describes it well. There are a few gap jumps that you'll need to find some speed for. There are a couple of off-shoots that will drop you right back down to the road to hit some of the bigger jumps below. There's an off-shoot at the end of the trail that you've got to take if you don't want to end up in the field but it's pretty clear where that is when you get to it.

Dr. Jekyll is the road you climb up and as a climb, is pretty technical in places with some pretty tricky line choices through rocky sections. The ride down faces similar challenges through the rocky sections, except with gravity on your side. Visibility is much better on the road than in the sagebrush and there's considerably more flow and even some small rollers to jump.

Hidden Valley Loop: This is just a couple of old double track farm roads that converge at the top to make a nice little loop hike. It's the perfect trail if you just need somewhere close to go trail running or biking for your morning workout or even if you just want to go for a peaceful walk. The "Loop" is two separate roads that come together on the south end. If you're riding a bike, the higher East road makes for a good climb and the lower West road has a decent flow as a downhill trail. The West road follows along just below the back side of the houses on Millhollow Road. The vegetation along that hill side can be very pretty. When you get to the top of the trail, you won't be at the top of anything but the road but there's still a pretty good view of Hidden Valley and some of the Eastern side of Rexburg and out through the valley.

PLEASE NOTE: This is private property that the owners are kind enough to permit use right now. Please respect their surrounding fields and stay on the trails that are already there. Please respect the residents near the trailhead and don't block driveways.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

More Info

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don’t feed the wildlife.

I enjoy this trail as a non-pavement biking workout. It's an easy loop with a decently fun really easy downhill. It's not going to win any awards for best hiking or biking trail in Southeast Idaho but it's easily at the top of the list for hikes within Rexburg.

This is one of my favorite morning workouts. I love that it's just right there so some mornings, I can ride dirt instead of pavement. As a trail itself, it's not my favorite but I do enjoy the rocky challenges. I'm still pretty new on the bike and there are still a few spots on the single track that I haven't got figured out just yet. It's really tight and the sagebrush is pretty tall so it's a little claustrophobic for me and it's really hard to tell what's coming. I'm sure that will get better with familiarity. The climb up is a good challenge. Some of the rocky chunks are very difficult to ride over but there's nothing you can't easily walk.

I live at the end of Hidden Valley next to this canyon. Please be respectful when parking and riding. Do not just park at the end of the street near the dirt and block driveways. Please park along the curbs. Also, the land is private, if track continues to be built, trash left, or anything stupid the owner will close this area. Be respectful and hopefully this will stay open. Oh, and stay OFF the farmers fields!!! Thank you.
