The forecast is for 95 F today so, once again, I got out there early. I picked up a copy of Steve Stuebner's book, Mountain Biking in McCall yesterday and decided to do all the easy trails in the list first. Heading across the highway and down Heinrich, I picked up the North Valley Rail-Trail. I'd wondered if it were marked from this direction since I've ridden that road and never seen the sign, but there it was.
It must be what they call single track because the dirt trail was barely a foot wide with tall grass and brush on both sides. I didn't stop to get a picture of that part, but will when I take this trail again.
Part of the trail runs through some trees and the shade was welcome, then it opens out onto a paved wide path that follows the road. It was a very nice ride, 12.2 miles and took 1 1/2 hours. I stopped only once to tell some tourists about nice drives in the area. I guess I stopped another time to snap a picture:
Here's the map part. I haven't figured out how to start with a fresh map when I upload so I just changed today's track to blue :)
