Feeling intimidated by the Baked Potato? Satiate your gravel appetite with a side of Tater Tots instead.
“Ketchum is my home and I want the RPI showcase of my beloved mountains to be as inclusive as possible. Tater Tot provides a low barrier of entry to folks who may have been previously intimidated by a 100-mile ride. With the Baked Potato, French Fry and Tater Tot, there’s a ride option for everyone who wants to #JoinTheRusch.” -Rebecca

Mileage: 18.76 miles
Elevation gain: 1,295 feet
Terrain: Paved and gravel roads
The 18.76-mile Tater Tot features the same professional experience as the Baked Potato and French Fry routes in a more bite-sized format. Tater Tot riders will enjoy a mix of 1/2 gravel and 1/2 pavement as the perfect intro to gravel riding. The course starts at Festival Meadows in Sun Valley and will roll out Trail Creek Road for about 5 miles. Here, Tater Tot riders will split from the group and take a right turn on Corral Creek Road. Be alert for this course split or you’ll be headed up and over Trail Creek Summit and a much longer ride than you planned. Corral Creek is an amazing gravel road climbing gently through the aspen trees with impressive views of the Pioneer Mountains in front of you. At the end of the road, you’ll loop around at the Pioneer Cabin trailhead for a fun descent back to Trail Creek Road. At this point, you are not headed back to Sun Valley yet…take a right on Trail Creek and go another mile up the road to Antelope gravel road where you’ll loop back towards Sun Valley and enjoy the views of Mt. Baldy before your finish. Timing finish is under the Red Bull arch near the Sun Valley Gun Club. Please go through the timing mat so we know you made it back safely. After the Red Bull arch, continue untimed to Festival Meadows where you started. Hit the 2nd finish arch and collect your official Private Idaho finisher's neck gaitor and high five!
