Mountain Biking Thunderbolt Mountain Pass

****   Add a review
#35 of 70 mountain bike trails in Mongolia
#8,701 in the world

This is a 3.6 mile (5.8km) long connector trail. It connects between the Long Tree Mountain Pass Trail and the Ash Mountain Trail. It is about 2.8 mile between the two trails, and there is about 3/4 of a mile of trail that overlaps with the Ash Mountain trail near the trailhead and main road. It is a mix of singletrack and two track, but more singletrack. Thunderbolt Mountain is to the SSE of the trail as you crest the pass. It is about a 2 mile (3.2km) climb from the road to the top of the pass and a 1.6 mile (2.6km) descent on the river side of the pass to Lone Tree Mountain Pass Trail. Either direction is good ride. It is worth riding as an out and back because both downhills are very good.
