“A great trail in Doi Suthep National Park.”
— Jeff Nelson
This trail is one of many trails within the Doi Suthep National Park. Can be done as an out-and-back or as a shuttle run.
This run starts with a steep drive up the highway towards the temple and summit of Doi Suthep. There are a couple of access road approach angles to hit the trail start point. Once you reach the summit, the trail starts off the road with a very steep and straight section. From there, the trail quickly rolls into a mix of mellower surface with tree roots and rock sections are scattered throughout.
This is probably the most popular of the many trails in the area and can often be finished off by a short extension that heads back in towards Chiang Mai, where there are many food and beer stops.
