The Stanley Basin offers hundreds of miles of singletrack, doubletrack and dirt roads to explore in every direction. If you’re looking to get away from the crowds and see the Sawtooth Valley from a different perspective, this is a great way to do it.
If you are a sledneck you have just found your sanctuary. The Stanley Basin offers almost limitless groomed trail riding and backcountry sledding in the shadows of one of the most breathtaking mountain ranges anywhere. With over 185 miles of groomed trail riding and hundreds of square miles of backcountry terrain outside of the wilderness boundaries, this is one of the last vestiges of the good old days. With a remote location far from population centers you can be sure that you will essentially have the place to yourself. Basing out of Stanley you will be able to ride in the four directions of the compass and all you will need is more time to explore.
