Jug Mountain Ranch near McCall opens this weekend for mountain biking with shuttles available

It’s easy to watch a slick video and think “man, I wish I had someplace that to ride.”

What’s better is when it’s a place you can ride. Jug Mountain Ranch trails open this weekend, and it’s starting its shuttle service on Saturday, May 16. Shuttles are $20 for four hours and operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

I enjoyed this video of Jug Mountain Ranch near McCall because it’s one of my favorite places to mountain bike, and I recognized several friends in the video.

If you’re pressed for time, the best riding footage in the video starts at about the four minute mark. If you haven’t ridden Jug Mountain Ranch, check it out, and bring money for lunch in the clubhouse. Riding, eating and drinking is a tough combination to beat.
