A super long ride (5 hrs) of almost all singletrack trails. For the most part, this loop gets technically more difficult the further along you go.


This ride starts at the Jamboree Trail (Disabled Sportsmen's Trail) on Black Gap Rd just off of McCall Dam Rd. Head up the doubletrack Jamboree Trail, also known as Disabled Sportsmen's Trail, to the top and look to make a left onto McCall Mountain Trail. Ride McCall Mountain Trail until it ends at Tunis Road. Turn right onto Tunis Road and ride the dirt road approximately two miles west and look for Hough Trail on the right.

Ride up Hough Trail and it will eventually connect and merge into Hall Trail. Continue on Hall Trail until it ends at Engle Rd. Make a right onto Engle Rd and ride maybe a quarter mile to Black Gap Trail on the left. Take Black Gap Trail until it ends at Black Gap Rd. Make a left onto Black Gap Rd and head maybe a quarter mile to White Deer Creek Trail on the right just past crossing over White Deer Creek.

From here, continue on White Deer Creek Trail until you come to McCall Dam Rd. Cross the road and continue on White Deer Creek Trail until it ends on White Deer Creek Road.
