Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Do you enjoy riding through a variety of terrain with excellent opportunities to see a variety of wildlife? Are you looking for a beautiful place to ride with children or inexperienced riders? Then Chamna Natural Preserve is the place for your next mountain biking adventure.

Enjoy riding on the labyrinth of trails that wind through this 276-acre park where you could easily become lost if it weren't for the ubiquitous and well-placed maps. Many of the trails were cut through dense brush and seem like tunnels as you ride through them. The trails lead alongside the Yakima River through a variety of landscapes including old-growth sagebrush, grasslands, wetlands, and woodlands. Although the terrain can change very quickly from sand to mud to river rock, the most technical parts of these trails appear as the occasional low branch or a hairpin corner. This is a great place to ride year-round, but high water sometimes keeps the lower trails impassable in the spring. If you visit in the summer, plan an early ride to beat the heat. Mountain biking through the Chamna Preserve is as fun as it is beautiful.
