Mountain Biking

Bike riding in the park is restricted to roads open to vehicles. The park’s Backcountry and Wilderness Management Plan designates approximately 29 miles of trails for non-motorized bike use, however, the new trails cannot be used until Congress gives its approval. In the meanwhile, the park's backcountry roads offer opportunities to explore many areas.

Biking Safety

  • Carry plenty of water, at least one gallon per person per day—two for extended or uphill trips.

  • Wear a helmet. If you take a spill your brain will thank you.

  • Ride with caution: Park roads are narrow with sandy shoulders, bumps, and potholes.

  • Watch for RVs and trucks with extended side-view mirrors.

  • Wear reflective clothing after dark.
