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.

Disclaimer

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

Tacky overall from the recent rain. One or two very minor spots that were a bit soft.

Pretty dry overall, but some sections are a bit rougher due to all the rain we have been getting. Nothing washed out though.

Extremely fun flowy trail thwart overlooks the mcphee reservoir. Take time out for a swim just past the rv campground!

With the recent rain it has the dust down and it is pretty grippy. Cattle damage is pretty minimal.
