Fees for Cyclists
You can bike down to Devils Postpile with no fee. If you choose to take the shuttle back out of the valley, you must pay the transportation fee. Shuttle buses take bicycles if space is available.
The Reds Meadow Road beyond Minaret Vista twists and turns for about 6.5 miles with 2,000 of elevation loss down to Devils Postpile. The road is paved, however, it is very narrow and cyclists should be aware of debris. It is a beautiful and challenging ride, particularly for those who make the trek back up to Minaret Vista. For those looking for just a downhill ride, consider riding the shuttle bus back to your vehicle at the Adventure Center at Mammoth Mountain.
Although trail riding is not permitted on any trails in the monument, check at the Mammoth Welcome Center for information about mountain bike trails in the town of Mammoth Lakes and at Mammoth Mountain.
While riding down Reds Meadow Road, use extreme caution and expect large RVs, stock trailers, and shuttle buses. Bikes are subject to the same speed limits as all other vehicles on the roadway. Please be cautious of debris, which frequently litters the road.
