Doi Thaen - Mae Jo

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Fantastic single track winding through the forest, mildly undulating, no nasty surprises, a fast racing track with average level technical level throughout (no cruisy bits), so you need to be a little fit to really enjoy this one. Two variations produce a 5 & 7km loop.

Trail Directions
Tricky to find, this trail starts beside a small dam at a forestry conservation centre near Mae Jo university on the Northeast of the city. (for help email@ chiangmaitrailriders@1stopchiangmai.com). There is a centre below the dam wall, follow the road beside dam for 1km and look out for trail head on left.

Summary:
The trail leads through dense jungle which can be a bit overgrown, especially at the beginning and especially in the rainy season. Wear long sleeves and eye protection. It's excellent for practice at an intermediate level. The small loop can be completed in 30 min - 1 hr. Don't veer off too far north, because there's jungle for miles and miles.

Recommended Route:
I am still looking for a connecting trail to Mae Kuang reservoir through the forest. If anyone knows... please post.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There's a whole network of singletrack trails southwest of the reservoir, most of them easy/flowy with occasional technical bits. Futhermore, when you cross the dam wall towards the forest and turn right you get to a large red dirt road that leads to two smaller reservoirs.
