The singletrack Chukar trail can be traveled in either direction but typically is used to connect the John Henry trail with the lower leg of the Blue View trail. It traverses a high saddle and provides nice view opportunities. It is all rideable and easy to navigate, but note that if you do combine it with the Blue View trail you will encounter a significant increase in difficulty on that segment of your loop.

Access Info

Easiest access is via the Foothills Trail to Valley trail and then John Henry trail to Chukar. The Foothills trail can be accessed from a parking area on the Challis Dump Rd or from the Challis Golf Course paved path.
