Eagle Nest bypass trail 111

Average Rating:    (3.86 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Turn left on road 400 and climb sometimes steeply for several miles. The climb angle backs off after while. Somewhere around 5 to 6 miles note a single track on your right that intersects the road. On your left the trail climbs a bit and descends down to the weigh station. You are presented with 3 ride choices.
Choices:
1) Shortest route: turn left and climb a bit and ride all way out to weigh station resulting in 5.6 miles of single track. Part way down the trail you will intersect a haul road with no route indication. Turn right and follow road for short while and see the trail continuing off the left side of the road.
2) Rideable climb, rideable hopscotch descent and maybe 6 mile logging road return to this point to ride choice 1. Simply turn right on single track and work your way up and over the shoulder of Eagle Nest. Continue until you intersect a haul road and turn left on road 400 giving you 2.7 miles of single track.
3) Long logging road ride right off the bat and a 1.2 mile ride / hike a bike section, cross the road following ride choice 1. Stay on road 400 until at mile 11.7 a haul road leaves the road, this is the first real right hand turn off road 400. A few feet off road 400 find the single track on your right. The trail crosses this haul road. You want to head South. Ride uphill solving the rock outcroppings for next 1.2 miles. Descend 2.7 miles and cross road 400 and ride choice 1.

Summary:
Trail still in great shape this year. a really fun singletrack downhill with a fairly steady ascent up the logging road. Worth your time if you are in the area.

Recommended Route:
option 1 is the best for a great seamless ride. I've done option 2 and 3. it is fun to ride up the singletrack that leads north east for a couple miles if you are feeling like a longer ride, and then just double back.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Sweet roller coaster single track that is just ridable up and scary fast coming back down. The trail can get fairly dusty in the late season so try after a T-storm or late fall.

Recommended Route:
There is a bit of private land near the bottom but the ride is open to the public. Stop by Gravity Sports in McCall or the local Forest Service office... everyone rides this ride

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bear Basin is becoming developed... try it out. Goose Creek has had tons of improvements done on it and can be a great shuttle ride or just a good grind out and fly back.

Summary:
This is a great ride. Its a pretty long, sustained climb up the logging road. However, you are rewarded with a beautiful twisting singletrack all the way down to the weigh station.

Recommended Route:
We rode option #1 due to time constraints. Allow at least 2hrs for #1.
