Chhaskhet Bike Trail is ideally one of the best mountain bike tours near Mussoorie for adventure seekers who are looking for a short & peaceful mountain biking experience in the lap of forested mountains. This bike trip starts from Clouds End which is about 8 km from Library Chowk, Mussoorie. Start the bike trail from Clouds End by paddling down the cemented road.

After about 2 km, the road diverts, the right one goes to village Dudhli & left one to Chhaskhet. Take the left road & paddle gently enjoying the amazing forest breeze. The path is an easy slope downhill for about 3 km as one crosses many green grassy patches which convince you to take rest & have amazing views of the Doon valley to the south.

Have a well deserved meal break & expore this beautiful village, doing photography, watching birds and if you are lucky, you might spot a wild deer, locally called “kaakar” in the nearby forests.
