Doi Suthep – Chiang Mai Downhill Mountain Bike Singletrack Trail – ‘Bamboo Trail’
Configuration: Point to point. Top to bottom. Technical downhill singletrack trail. 100% gnarly dirt.
Start point: Near top of Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai just below one of the scenic lookout points on road.
End point: Foot of Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai. Small neighborhood with a Wat (Temple) and coffee shop can be ridden to from end point of trail.
Notes: Take a red song taew truck or other transport to the starting point. Easy to find red song taew truck taxis at the base of Doi Suthep, near Chiang Mai Zoo. Loose leaves along this trail make it especially ‘slippery.’ There are root staircases, log jumps, and deep ruts on this trail. No big drops or rock sections. Watch for bamboo stalks at head level near bottom section of trail. One small stream crossing that is sometimes dry.
