Summary:
Very little single track; basically a series of slightly overgrown fire service roads. It was a descent work-out, but I was disappointed in the lack of single-track fun. --July 2009

Summary:
The Gulch rocks, if you have a shuttle to the top. Echo Ridge XC trails are good, plenty of different trails to ride. Plenty of jumps on the gulch and lots of different spurs off the main trail, look for them.

Recommended Route:
Straight down.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Anywhere

Summary:
Echo Ridge was developed as a cross-country ski area by the U.S. Forest Service. It has 18 miles of trail cut into the hillsides. There are a number of options available to the rider depending on their experience. One of my favorites is to ride from the Echo Valley Ski Area up the Forest Service road to the Echo Ridge Parking lot. This insures that you have earned a great downhill run through Bergman Gulch. From the Ridge parking lot, head out to Grand Junction. At the GJ kiosk, look to your right. Between the two trails is a fun single track which takes the rider to Chaos Corner. From there head on down Alley Oop and do that loop which will bring you back to Chaos Corner. Then head up Windsinger to Grand Junction. From there head up Ridge View or go out Morning Glory to 5-Corners. Hit Little Critter. Keep your eye open for the single track taking off to the right after you have ridden most of Little Critter. This will dump you at North Junction at the beginning of the 1.9 mile Gulch. It is fast, sometimes technical and definitely dangerous if you hit a huge water bar going to fast. Your ride ends back at Echo Valley.

Recommended Route:
There are close to 20 plus miles of trails, old jammer (logging) roads, fire roads and xc ski trails open to Mountain Bikers. Pick up a map at the Chelan Ranger District located next to the Caravel Resort.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are a number of other rides in the area. Some are Epic and others are just rides. Check out the new website: www.bikelakechelan.com
