The vast majority of the forest’s trails are part of designated wilderness areas where cycling is prohibited. Nonetheless, there are many opportunities for two-wheel enthusiasts on, or near, the Inyo National Forest.

Paved roads that head into the forest are usually very steep but offer scenic-if challenging- hill climbing. Most of the forest serves primarily as a scenic backdrop for cycling and mountain biking in the valleys below.

Summers are hot and dry, so always carry extra water. Winters bring cool temperatures and big snowfalls in the high country; bicycling in the winter is best on the valley floor and in the southern, lower-elevation areas of Inyo County.
