Overview

Mountain Quail Bike Trail is a complete bike trail circuit in the Benog forest region also known as the Mussoorie Wildlife Sanctuary. It is a perfect forest mountain bike tour near Mussoorie for nature lovers who want to spent an entire day doing mountain biking in the forest. This bike trail starts from Clouds End, which is just 8 km from Library Chowk, Mussoorie. Arrive in Mussoorie & take a taxi to Clouds End. Start the bike trail from Clouds End by paddling downhill for 1 km after which there is a forested path that goes north. Enter this path to witness a perfect Himalayan forest trail, ideal for mountain biking. On your left is a deep thickly forested valley & to your right are huge limestone cliffs (some reminiscent of old limestone quarries). This part of bike trip feels like one is biking at the edge of a mountain. After a mixed trail of rocky & muddy path, you will come across a very small cemented temple, made by local villagers. Cross this temple, the trail turns northeast & thickly forested but very wide & perfect for mountain biking. Bike futher for 3 km to reach Andheri diversion (Nature Trail markings), from where one path goes uphill to Benog Hill and another to Happy Valley, Tibbetan School. Take a meal break here. If you are a pro-biker, you can reach all the way upto Benog Hill, locally known as Benog Tibba (2,250m) or you can return to Clouds End by paddling back on the same trail. Biking to the Benog top is both adventurous & challenging.

Mountain Quail Bike Trail near Mussoorie is a wholesome MTB experience offering a mix of uphill, downhill, rocky & forest trails. Our bike trail leader Mr. Devpal briefed & guided us very professionally on the bike trail. Biking uphill to Benog Hill peak was very challenging, so we had to get off our MTBs & hike whenever the gradient was high. However, it was worth reaching the Benog Hill top & seeing the magnificent 360 degree views. Looking forward to more MTB tours with TrailHikers !
