Mountain Biking Clay Mountain

#60 of 70 mountain bike trails in Mongolia
#32,105 in the world

These trails run up and down the last forested slopes of Bogd Uul on the very far SE tip of the mountain range. The trails run from the grassy bottom slopes up into the forests and high ridge tops. The figure eight layout allows for the trails to be ridden in a variety of ways. With an average slope of 10% and max slope of 25% or more, most of the climbs are doable but in the "red zone". Most of the downhills are screamers. The trails are two tracks and faint two tracks. Though there are 7.3 miles (11.8 km) of trail as laid out on the trail map, there are various other side trails to explore. I would guess there is about 10 miles of connected trail in the area.

Clay Mountain is the highest peak on the southern end of the area. It is more of a elongated high ridge top more than a peak. The ridge run generally north and south, and the top sits between the southern most loop of the Clay Mountain Trail and the Upper Basin Short Loop Trail.
