Designed for cross country skiing, this trail system brings together the perfect amount of ups and downs for summer mountain biking. Generally flowy with a handful of steeper pitches, the area can be ridden in any number of loops or connections.

Looking for an epic ride? Bike to the trailhead from wherever you're staying on the shores of Lake Chelan. The elevation gain on the paved road is steep but doable for the intermediate athlete. Not so much? Park at one of the various trailheads.

Try the 3.6 mile Outback trail connected to Lickety Split and Big Critter to High Five Junction. You just might be throwing a few of those around after you descend The Shoe and Switchback Alley. I'd recommend taking a photo of the trail map with your phone so you can make the best connections, but even if you forget, this area is very well marked. Remember to watch out for hikers and horseback riders!

Washington / Clark's Point Trail

The trailhead to both sides of Clark's Point starts at the end of a street in a very rich neighborhood. Driving down Fieldston Road feels like driving through Laguna Beach, CA.
