From the 45 miles of crushed-rock and gravel carriage roads in Acadia National Park, to the two miles of East Shore Trail recently opened to mountain biking at Rocky Mountain National Park, bike options at national parks across the country can provide access to the scenic, historic, and recreational values of a place. The recently-installed repair stands on Skyline Drive, bicycle-only campgrounds on Natchez Trace Parkway, and bike share option for touring the National Mall are a few of the ways that bike exploration is encouraged.
These three routes in the southeast region are just a few of the paths to exploring park cultural landscapes by bike:
- Loop Road at Cades Cove Historic District
- Mammoth Cave Hike and Bike Trail
- Mountain Biking Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area
