Trail Overview

The McCann Trail is an 8-mile trail located in the Cascade Ranger District of the Boise National Forest. The trail begins off Forest Service Road #472 Lodgepole Creek. The trail starts as an easy dirt road and winds up the mountain with beautiful views of Stolle Meadows and several creek crossings. The trail crosses over the ridge and begins descending into the Rice Creek drainage. It's here that the trail becomes extremely overgrown. While the trail is fairly easy, the last switchback has a fairly significant washout, making the trail dangerous if you are not prepared. Along with a steep off-camber hill climb, this trail is rated a 5. The trail travels through the remnants of the 2007 Cascade Complex Fire--be prepared for downfall.
