Mountain Biking Elk Chase #1 (surveyor Park Tr)

****   Add a review
#62 of 249 mountain bike trails in Wyoming
#5,257 in the world

This trail used to be part of the White Pine downhill mountain biking trails. You will see blue diamonds posted throughout the trail. It is an old pack trail, it starts out going gradual uphill through trees with a rocky trail into a large park, the trail continues to go left (east) towards the wilderness boundary, you will come to fence post at the top of the hill go right if you want to do the steeper trail (elk chase #2) if not continue on the main trail, it will weave around some meadows up to the left, there is some deadfall and a bog to ride around. The trail is a little overgrown in some sections. Once you cross the bog you will ride into the trees and the trail gets smoother, wider, and more well worn. You will get to a fork, there is a trail sign that points to the left (better trail) GO RIGHT towards the less worn trail, you will find yourself on a downhill trail that looks like an old road, that has nice whoops and zigs zags down the mountain. There are several trees that haven fallen across so be alert. When you get to the bottom, you will cross another small bog and be at the bottom of the ski area and will follow a two-track out and come out at the charilift.

Getting there

From Pinedale take Fremont Lake Road which turns into Skyline Drive to White Pine Ski Area about 10 miles, turn into the ski area park in the far side of the lot closest to the lodge. This is the bottom of the trail. Leave a car.
Drive back onto to the main road turn right and continue on up to Elkhart Park Trail Head another 6 miles or so. Pass the guard station and turn at the next right which is the trailhead parking. The trail actually starts behind the guard station. Follow the two track behind the guard station to the garage, the trail starts behind the garage.

    One of the best trails I've ever ridden. Shuttle from Elkhart Down to White Pine makes it sooooo easy and you can lap it. Some deadfall, but should be removed shortly. Top is flowy cross country with the bulk of the Wind River/Titcomb area in the back ground that descends into fast, flowy singletrack with approx. 15 nice rolly jumps. Seriously, this area is underrated for Mountain Biking.

    I was confused by where the starting point from the driving directions took me. I finally found what I thought was a logical starting point at the White Pine Ski resort. I used a Nordic ski trails map to navigate what I best matched the directions to for the riding since there was no topo data for this one. I can see where once upon a time this was a great trail but it is in disrepair now with lots of deadfall and overgrown areas making the trail somewhat hard to follow. I am adding some topo data for where I rode based on what I thought the directions and pictures were telling me.

    This trail has a lot more cardio and is has a funner downhill than Elkchase 2, in my opinion.
