The City of McCall GIS Department (Geographic Information System mapping technology) has created a trail guide and map for our area that includes routes for hiking, mountain biking, skiing, even places to climb. And it’s only $10! Proceeds will help fund the City’s Parks and Recreation Department.

The map includes trails from the U.S. Forest Service, providing mileage and noting popular destinations. It displays public land, bike paths and trail networks like Ponderosa State Park, Jug Mountain and Bear Basin.It also highlights common wildflowers, helps identify animal tracks, even provides fish descriptions.

“We were aiming to create a comprehensive map for all outdoor enthusiasts looking to recreate in the McCall area,” said Garret Mapp, City of McCall’s GIS Analyst. “We are very proud to bring this one to the public.”

The map is durable and waterproof, pocket-sized for easy use. It can be purchased at the City Hall and in area sports stores.
