The Chelan Mountain Range, who knew? If you haven’t heard about this place, you’ve stumbled upon one of Washington’s best kept secrets. Located near Lake Chelan, this network lies on Eastside of the Cascade Range and has a high desert rocky trail character. This ride tours the South side of the Chelan Mountains, with a great shuttle road we can utilize to get ourselves deep into the backcoutntry. We’ll meet at Silver Falls Trailhead where we’ll all hop in the shuttle van for our first uplift, and the same uplift we’ll do 2 times on the day. We offer in the title of this ride Trail names like Pyramid Mountain, Lake Creek, Angle Peak and Four Mile. All incredible trails that lie within this network. We’ll be able to sample 2 on the day with well over 10K of mountain bike descending! Which two you ask? We keep you guessing until the day of your ride and we base it off trail conditions and what is running the best. We hope to start you on a shuttle ride to the top for a nice descent down Angle Peak, a little 5K downhill that land us back near our shuttle meeting location. From here, we’ll grab some refreshments and lunch and hop back in the van for a ride all the way back up to the top. This time, we will head to Pyramid Mountain, one of the highest elevation rides you can do on your mountain bike in the PNW. For those who want to see the peak of Pyramid, we’ll continue uphill to the top, another 1,500 foot hike a bike. We’ll worth the expansive views and a closer look at the magnitude of the glacial movement that carved the unique landscape we’re riding in. From here, we’ll descend all the way back down, just over 6,000 feet to be exact, to our van and the end of a great day on the bike. It’s hard to show the excitement we have for this area in a ride description. All we can say is this Northern Cascades Zone we have unlocked offers arguably the best mountain biking in the State of Washington! It’s such a unique landscape and a great compliment to the vegetative west side of the Cascades. If you haven’t heard of this place, and you find your self reading these words, do yourself a favor and sign up for this great day on the bike.
