This trail is all downhill and is the closest we get to full face helmet riding near Chelan. The trail has some great ridge line riding with incredible views of surrounding mountains and Lake Chelan. Once you reach the bottom you can cruise in to town on the paved bike path. The climb from Lakeside Park is nothing short of relentless but you can shuttle to the top. Watch out for hikers on the lower half of the trail.

reporter A little bit of snow up top on the access road and upper 300 yards of the trail. Other than that its riding good after our fall rains.

Tree down across the trail about 600ft into the trail. There's a ride around but your going pretty fast at it. Really dry, some water damage/ruts....

 Really sketchy on top, not a cross country ride by any means. Gorgeous views.

 Trail is riding well after our fall rains but some snow at the very top of the access road and trail.
