The North Valley Trail is perfectly groomed and in great shape for xc skiing, snow-biking and snowshoeing for the winter of 2019-2020. Just in time for the Christmas holiday!
The trailhead is located south of McCall by the Activity Barn. There’s ample parking for everyone. There’s about 5 miles of trails to enjoy in the area at no charge. The North Valley Trail is rated easy for all abilities. The trails on the hills next to the Activity Barn are rated moderate to strenuous.
We want to thank our partners for improving your experience on the North Valley Trail and Activity Barn Nordic trails. The McCall Rotary Club gave us a grant to make the trail kiosk possible at the Activity Barn trailhead. Todd Clouser built the kiosk for us, donating his professional workmanship. And the Idaho Power Company allowed the development of the trailhead parking area out by Heinrich Lane, about 3 miles from the Activity Barn. That way, people can park on the north or the south end of the North Valley Trail, and ski 3 miles out and 3 miles back.
We also want to thank our partners at Brundage Mountain Resort for working together with us on the Nordic trail system and providing extra parking. Take some time to go tubing with your family at the Activity Barn. They also have hot drinks and snacks.
We hope you enjoy the North Valley Trail and Activity Barn Nordic Trails, and consider donating to Valley County Pathways to help cover our grooming costs and long-range, valley-wide trail-development plan. Thanks!
