This is a new trail for 2017 that follows the shoreline of the McPhee Reservoir from Bear Canyon Loop heading south all the way to town. It turns inland around the House Creek Campground. The trail is mostly pretty easy but it is a lot of miles and pretty remote. Great views and some short flatrock sections to ride over keep it interesting.


Main Trail is closed 12/1~5/1 (House Creek Campground to Bear Canyon Open all year)
