Our trails in Valley County are open and available for public use — still mostly snow-covered, depending on location — but please observe proper #social-distancing guidelines when you are out on the trails. That means respecting others by providing at least 6 feet of space when you pass people on the trail. If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, stay home!
Valley County government has issued guidelines to underscore Governor Brad Little’s Stay-at-Home order. See link to Channel 7 report on Valley County guidelines. The bottom line is, don’t come to Valley County if you are not a full-time resident. Second-home owners and tourists are being told to stay away during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please respect their wishes.
The North Valley Trail in McCall, Boulder Creek Trail in Donnelly and The Strand in Cascade are all available for public use. Cross-country skis, snowshoes or boot-hiking is best right now depending on snow conditions. Locals also have been crust-cruising in the mornings after a hard freeze.
Please stay safe during these difficult times! Thank you!
