George Everest Bike Trail starts from Barlowganj, which is about 8 km downhill to Mussoorie. For adventure enthusiasts who want to do a long bike trail, this is one of the best mountain bike tours near Mussoorie. Barlowganj is a small hamlet from the British time which now has a small market, a five star hotel (Jaypee Residency Manor), a few small guest houses. It is well connected to both Dehradun & Mussoorie by road. Start the bike trip from Barlowganj towards north, moving on a moderate road through the pine & oak scented scenery. After about 3 km, you reach the Jaypee Gate, where you enter the main Dehradun-Mussoorie road. Take the road down and after paddling down for 2 km you will reach ITBP Gate. Just beyond 50 metres from this gate, a kuchha road (old uncemented path) goes towards the right (north) which is called Mckenzie road. Take this road and you’ll soon appreciate an entirely different landscape. After about 2 km, there is a Nag Devta temple, which is a place of worship for the local villagers. Continue your mountain bike tour to reach Hathipaon & finally to the George Everest House. Take a meal break while enjoying a breathtaking scenery. For return, take the road towards the Waverly School and finish the bike trip at Library Chowk, Mussoorie.
