We are in awe (serious awe) of the epic downhill mountain bikers who tackle the diverse terrain around McCall. For those with the skills, it is definitely worth a try. But let’s face it, not all of us have the balance and reflexes to keep from flying over a bike’s handlebars in a banked turn on steep singletrack. Knowing the limits of our ability, some of us prefer sticking to easy cruising…beach cruising, that is!
A beach cruiser is the perfect way to navigate McCall in the summer. Jump on a cruiser for a leisurely ride to grab a morning coffee at Mountain Java. Gallery hop through downtown McCall and skip the hassle of parking. Grab a group of friends and hit up a few stops along the McCall Ale Trail. Take the family for an after-dinner treat at Ice Cream Alley. The possibilities are endless.
On a cruiser, getting from point A to point B offers up an opportunity to slow down and take in the scene around you. Because a cruiser typically has a limited number of gears, a slower pace is natural. Ditch the car and opt for the breeze on your face as you bypass summer traffic to strike out to explore the side streets and pathways (you may even encounter some of our famous “town deer”).
For an easy, scenic ride, we love combining the Spring Mountain Ranch and downtown McCall paved pathways into a loop. Start at the Payette Lakes Middle School and head north. Follow the path as you pass the McCall Golf Course and Spring Mountain Ranch neighborhood. At Lick Creek Road, turn west toward Ponderosa State Park. From the four-way stop at Davis Street, jump on to McCall Avenue toward Mile High Marina then merge onto Mill Road. From here, head into Legacy Park for picture-perfect views of Payette Lake. To connect to the final stretch of pathway, ride along 2nd Street to City Hall. The pathway veers south toward Harshmans Skate Park and connects to Deinhard Lane. From here, choose to go east along Deinhard back to the Middle School, or cross Deinhard and keep going south…the trail ends right near Broken Horn Brewing and, let’s face it, you deserve a beer after all that scenic fun!
