McCall’s bike parks alleviate the pressure of finding the “perfect trail” by offering something for all riding abilities in one location. For beginners, stick to wide, lower trails like Jug Mountain Ranch’s South Boundary, North Elk Loop, or South Elk Lollypop. Tamarack’s Meadow Trails are also a great place for relaxed riding. Intermediate riders will love Bear Basin’s Grand Traverse, Blue Ridge Loop, and Rising Sun trails while Growler at Brundage is a great family-friendly option.

Jug Mountain Ranch offers lots of terrain and features to keep you coming back


Outside of the bike parks, there is an endless network of backcountry trails waiting to be explored. And it takes a lot of dedicated work to keep every mile of epic trail in prime condition. This work is done, in large part, by the Forest Service and volunteers from groups like CIMBA and the Central Idaho Trail Riders Alliance. To get out and experience these phenomenal backcountry trails, we recommend starting with the Crestline Trail, the East Fork of Lake Fork Trail, and the Loon Lake Trail.
