Description

A great trail system with easy access from McCall. There is a bike path under construction to connect the trail system to McCall that should be completed by the Spring of 2015.

The Drain trail is the gem of the Bear Basin system. The trail starts with a series of tall berms in the trees and is very fast. You can keep a great deal of speed through the turns. Halfway down the trail then crosses the Grand Traverse trail. From this point the trail continues to have berms, but adds in some table top jumps. All of the jumps are tables and there are ride arounds for some of the larger jumps. This means that the trail can truly be ridden by an intermediate rider and also enjoyed by more advanced riders who can hit the jumps.
