Ashinoko Skyline trail

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

It starts with a mighty hike up a steep rocky trail. Once you get to the summit, there are some great views of Lake Ashinoko and Mt Fuji. This trail involves a lot of hiking with your bike, but there is also some good singletrack and some fast downhill sections.

Summary:
This trail definitely has its moments. Steep inclines and the declines are killer. There are some black diamond drops on this trail so be careful. Mountain Bill has the directions and all in all a great scenic trail to ride, bring a snack, and ride the toll rode back. Watch out at the end the toll attendants get pretty mad when you go flying through the gates at the end of the Skyline toll rode.

Summary:
This trail starts with a long hike up a steep, rocky trail. It continues up to the summit, where you can see some great views of Mt Fuji and Lake Ashinoko. From there, it's downhill on some fast singletrack. Then it's up and down until you get to the lake, where there is some good, sometimes technical singletrack. Overall, there is a lot of hiking with your bike, which can be quite tiring. However, the scenery and some fast sections make it worthwhile.

Recommended Route:
All credit must go to mountain bike bill. Check out his website for directions, maps and trail description.
