Lots of climbing on Forest Service roads. Ride through dirt roads that are heavily washed out with ruts - they're fun to ride through and hop over. Once you get to the top, hop off your bike and hike around to see inside of Yosemite!
Need To Know
Watch out for poison oak. 4 wheel drive cars frequently drive on this road.
Start right off of Highway 120. Hop onto dirt Forest Service roads after a mile. Keep taking your first right whenever you run into an intersection. Watch out for washed out roads with long steep ruts. Wind through giant groves of conifer trees. You'll run into a wooded area with skinnier roads that start to get steep.

Ride to the top for a great view. Get off your bike and scramble around on the granite rock to get amazing views. Get back on your bike and be prepared for some fast downhill.
