Pugmark trail is a fantastic ride with highway cruising, riding passed farms, then through the periphery of the Jim Corbett National park, riding through a lush green forest cover as we start our climb up to Nainital enjoying the thrill of riding on the winding mountain roads crossing dense sal, pine and oak forests on the way. After Nainital the wind gets significantly cooler, traffic thins out, the forests seem more lush, the valleys become deeper and the horizon wider as we ride up to a height of 8000 ft ASL. to one of the most scenic hill stations of the region – Mukteshwar.
