“A fun, flowy singletrack trail that connect to the Inyo Craters Loop.”
— Eric Hunter
Inyo Craters Singletrack is a sweet little section of trail that doesnt get ridden as much as it should. You reach a parking area where it connects with an old jeep road that takes you up to the Inyo Craters Lookout. Here you must park your bike, as its illegal to ride bikes on the trails around the craters. There are some picnic tables, interpretive signs, and its a nice place to hike around and eat a snack before heading back down. This ride is short on its own, but splendid when combined with the Inyo Craters Loop
Start at the trailhead sign (see photo), going up the Inyo Craters Singletrack. Cross the road and start grunting up the short, steep, soft climb - dont worry it levels off quickly. Next, you'll arrive in the main Inyo Craters parking area. Turn left and go past the bathrooms.
Youll pass a hiking trail and kiosk to the right, continue straight, dont take the hiking trail. When you reach two green poles blocking an old jeep road on the right (see photo), enter the trail and start climbing. Once you arrive at the top, you can park your bike and do some exploring. When youre done, retrace your steps back to the car.
