For our first day, we will ride from Ketchum to beautiful Stanley, Idaho. A charming town nestled at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains, Stanley boasts pristine scenery which provides a perfect backdrop for riding and camping. The jagged Sawtooths and the majestic Salmon River make for a perfect location to kick off our first official night of the ride, for the natural beauty will foreshadow what we will see for the entire tour.

Stanley is known as the gathering place for thousands of enthusiasts who come to raft the mighty Salmon River. There are also many other magnificent bodies of water including the beautiful Red Fish Lake, which is one of the most scenic lakes in Idaho. Stanley offers many opportunities for recreational activities including hiking, rafting, swimming, bike riding and more. There are also unique shops, top-notch retailers and great restaurants to check out in the town.
