It's called mountain biking for a reason. Careening down a mountain singletrack and zig-zagging through pines and aspens is the epitome of the sport. Take your eyes off the trail and there's postcard scenery everywhere, and there are hundreds of miles of lightly used trails in the McCall area.
There's a lot to be said for being able to walk into the ocean with your dive gear, swim out a few hundred feet and then explore coral reefs or a shipwreck while seeing a variety of fish, lobsters and maybe even a sea turtle.
