Big news! Valley County Pathways has opened up about four miles of the old railroad right of way, south of McCall, to Heinrich Lane, just one mile north of Lake Fork.
Here are some photos of the news section of trail as well as a map showing how to access the rail-trail south of McCall:
They are beautiful and fun to walk, bike or ride on horseback. The trail is closed to all motorized vehicles, winter and summer, as per agreements with private property owners.
Otherwise, enjoy riding the rail-trail. If you’re on a bike, consider lengthening your trip by riding a loop: Take the RR ROW from McCall to Heinrich Lane, then turn left on Heinrich and go right on Norwood to Lake Fork Road. Go left and follow Lake Fork Road over to Idaho 55. Cross the highway and ride back to McCall via Farm to Market Road and Samson Trail or Elo Road.
