PathwaysMcCall Area Pathways Committee


A connected, non-motorized network of pathways and trails in the McCall Area that connects the community with nearby forest and water recreation opportunities. This pathway system enhances our unique mountain community, cherished by generations for its scenic beauty and small-town quality of life.

  • Improve pathway connections and safety within neighborhoods and between parks, schools, recreational areas, public buildings, Ponderosa State Park, Payette National Forest and other community destinations.
  • Enhance McCall’s reputation as a pedestrian-friendly, small-town community and boost economic development opportunities.
  • Increase pathway use for people of all physical abilities, and improve health and fitness of trail users by providing connected pathways for walking and biking.
  • Provide alternate transportation options in the McCall community and reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.
  • Promote respect for private property along the pathways to minimize disruption and disturbance.
  • Promote McCall Area Pathways’ benefits and routes for residents and visitors.
