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.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

 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.

 Absolutely phenomenal views, worth every bit of effort to climb or shuttle up!

The trail itself is a ridge top / barrow bench cut trail that varies between well maintained to rutted but rideable water damaged trail.

Don’t question it, just go ride it. Shuttle road is somewhat steep in places but easy for most Subaru / SUV’s
