Can you pinpoint (to some extent) this McCain Hill road a little for me. Or any other 'points of interest'. If not, not to worry. I ride with a Garmin Cx60 so I can't plug in road names.

I'm making a broad assumption that this is a public thoughofare?

Thx -
It's off Dana's Rd/ Bear Run Rd (CR25). If coming from Newport, it's past CR9 to the bottom of the hill and take a left through the creek & up the hill (TR382). Up is better than down, it's really not that hairy, just the line I have used before was washed out/loose yesterday when I came down.
A scary road is Irish Run Rd (TR58). Google doesn't even show it connected anymore, but it is. It does take 3 guys to take a GSA with Tourances up. Not a good "road" to ride alone.
I ride with VistaC and have .gpx tracks of some of these roads, that's likely easier if folks are interested.
