Ride Overview

Welcome to Lake Chelan, perhaps the best kept secret in the State of Washington. The trails surrounding this lake are world class, providing an endless inventory of huge 5,000 ft descents and grandiose views of the Northern Cascade Mountain Range. There are great housing accommodations in the area, we’d recommend you and your crew score an Air BNB and make a weekend of it. This ride starts and ends at Twenty File Mile Creek State Park. This ride begins with a massive 5,000 ft. shuttle to the top of the the mountain, where we start are ride traversing across the Devils Backbone, a spiny rock ridge with massive talus fields and incredible alpine views. This is where most of your climbing comes in for the ride, it’s a sporty ridgeline traverse with some tough climbing, but also some fun descending and incredible scenery. We’ll eventually reach the trail intersection of Pot Peak and a massive 5k descent all the way back down to our cars. We can’t say enough good about this area. This is a brand new zone for us this year, and because of the pristine environment we work in, there are only 24 spots available for the entire season, we’d recommend you book this trip before someone else does!

Our History

with Lake Chelan

With our Headquarters in Oakridge, Oregon and the majority of our riding done in the Willamette National Forest (Oregon) and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest (SW Washington), this place was off the radar geographically. When we first put our tires on the ground here, our minds were blown. It’s such a unique and diverse riding landscape and a perfect compliment to the dank and dark forest on the more Western Side of the Cascade Mountain Range. The east side of the cascades definitely own a massive volume of 5K descents and high elevation riding amongst saphire blue lakes, massive ponderosa pines and a more desert landscape, the Northern Portion of the Cascades are a site to see.
