Bike the Van Sickle Bi-State Park Trail

Added by Brian Walker

Amazing Views from top to bottom and a great workout. An awesome ride with a mellow climb from Stagecoach. The milage from the top to bottom is about 5 miles. The elevation gain at the peak's elevation is 7,856 ft with the bottoms elevation at 6,250.

Starting at the top of Stagecoach Lift on Heavenly Resort this trail wraps around the north slope down to the bottom of town at the casinos. It has amazing view all the way down as you make your way down the woods up top and then cruise through the burn area near the gondola fire down to the bottom. Full of fun rock sections, stair sets, and small rocks to jump off of. A great downhill bike trail and hiking trail.

Great workout

Walked it instead of biking. Strenuous if you are not in great shape, but well worth it.

We hiked it and it was beautiful!

Ended up at a waterfall one mile in and was amazing.
