Mountain Biking Fire Tower Lower Loop

*****   Add a review
#23 of 70 mountain bike trails in Mongolia
#7,132 in the world

If riding CCW, it is about 5 mi (8 km) of climbing (all rideable) up to the old fire tower, and then 3.5 mi (5.5 km) of bomber downhill back to the camp. This is an intermediate trail with really nice grade. Good climbing and very fast descending. The surface is mostly organic though you do have to use a dirt road on top and then a pretty rocky road, together for about a mile total, to make the last push up to the fire tower. See the main system map for Shargamorit Khandgait Hills East to see the route.

    The east side valley, heading N from the camp and then NW makes for a nice gradual climb, mostly on old two tracks. There is one steeper section for a mile or so, but it was very rideable -- just a good workout. And the final climb up to the fire tower is a little short of a 1/2 mi (.65 km) and is pretty stout, but again doable. All in all, it is a great 5 mi climb up to the tower. From the tower back to the camp is pure DH bliss. The gradient is perfect for just rippin' down the mountain, and there are all kinds of roots, dips, scoops, and curves to play on all the way down. Nothing is very technical, just let it go and let your bike take over. Except for a few dirt/rock road stretches, the trail is quite organic for Mongolia. All in all, it's a great ride in a beautiful forest.
