Trail Description
About this trail
The trail heads south out of the back of Zaisan Camp. It continues south up the mountain for 2.25 mi (3.6 km) until you reach an open meadow on top. It is a 1700' climb. So it is a pretty brutal climb. It is also makes for a fairly technical rippin' descent with a lot of roots and some rock. In of itself it is a fair ride as an out and back -- not my favorite trail in the area, but I will use it to access other trails and to start or finish other rides. Therefore, I see it as more of a connector trail. It is one of the main access trails on the west end of the Bogd Uul. From the meadow you can basically head in all four cardinal directions on trails.

Review: The ride itself could easily be rated a 4 or 4 plus because it is a fun descent, but the fact is the trail way overused. It is the most used trail in Ulaanbaatar area, and I would assume the country. There are many hundreds of hikers on the trail on Saturdays and Sundays. The trail is showing a lot of wear for the worse. With so many other pristine and solitary trails near Ulaanbaatar it is hard for me to choose to ride Zaisan. But as I said, in terms of just the biking itself, it is a good ride. I would consider it an intermediate advanced trail.
