Chocwich Mountain Bike Trail

  

Goat Lake: Follow the Upper Elliot Creek Trail straight ahead from the trailhead. Continue one mile and turn left at the junction to follow the Chockwich Trail.

Bedal: The trail is an old roadbed traversing mid-slope between Bedal Creek and the Upper Elliot Creek Trail. Begin at Bedal Creek Trailhead and cross Bedal Creek in a fourth mile at a campsite. The ford can be difficult, especially early in the season. The ford at Chockwich creek can also be difficult in high runoff conditions. Continue downward through big timber, transitioning into small alder groves and openings with views of the upper Sauk valley until reaching the junction with Upper Elliot Creek Trail 647 at 2,200 feet. Bicycles are only allowed on Upper Elliot Creek Trail. Lower Elliot Creek Trail is not a bike trail and the Goat Lake Trail enters Henry M. Jackson Wilderness where only foot traffic is permitted.
