Update

An open "play area" where you can truly choose your own adventure.

Brian Smith

Overview

Bishop Rock is managed by the local BLM office as an open "play area." So, if you're looking for a place to put in some nice singletrack miles, look elsewhere. That said, if you're looking to play around in a natural bike park, you've found it!

This place is literally a rock-covered ridge. Steep rock faces to roll, natural bermed walls, a "toilet bowl," the chasm gap - you name it, it's here. This place is an absolute playground if you like natural rock features.

Need To Know

This is not a trail riding experience...it's all freeride. Be careful and ride with at least one buddy - this area is remote and cell service is hit or miss.

Description

From the pull-off, roll down the 4WD road and look for a faint climbing trail that switchbacks up the backside of the ridge. Once you gain the ridge, you truly pick you own adventure.

There's no real "trail" but you'll likely see some faint paths that have been beaten in by the few locals that take advantage of this playground. Follow them to find some of the highlights or just cruise around looking for awesome rock features to conquer.

You can generally follow the ridge downhill and to the right to eventually pop out at the main road. Pedal back to your vehicle or consider another lap!
