Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is a growing sport in the mountains. Riding is permitted on designated routes, which include the forest road and trail network, except for the Pacific Crest Trail, short nature trails, and any trail leading to, or inside designated Wilderness areas.

Challenging routes can be found for all skill levels but the more spectacular rides are best attempted by the experienced cyclist. Route information is available at each of the Ranger Stations.

Electric Bicycles:

  • Electric bicycles are growing in popularity and offer increased potential for quality recreation experiences, where determined appropriate, that connect people with enjoyment of their National Forests. 
  • Electric bicylces are allowed on roads and trails open to all vehicles, 50 inch OHV and motorcycle only routes. https://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/sbnf/recreation/ohv
