“A mix of doubletrack dirt road and an amazing singletrack up the Owens Gorge.”— Eric Hunter
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
Ride through the neighborhood of Sunny Slopes and make a left on Juniper Dr until it turns to dirt. Continue on the easement until you see the fire service road. You'll come to a tee - you'll come back on the right trail but make a left on the way out.
This trail is shared with motos, trail runners, and dog walkers so keep your wits although I haven't seen anybody else when riding this trail. It is easy to get lost out here so use the MTB Project mobile app to navigate your way around the loop.
The Owens Gorge Trail is the highlight of the Owens Gorge Loop as you climb or descend this singletrack along the Owens Gorge and be sure to take note of the historic canyon walls. This is a mini Grand Canyon of the Owens Valley.
