Other Area Trails for Biking
Here are other trails throughout the park that offer biking. Keep in mind, these trails are also available for hiking, so please be cautious for other visitors when using these trails.
The use of e-bikes, in compliance with applicable adopted state law, will be allowed on park roads opened to motor vehicle use (classes 1, 2, and 3). E-bikes will now be allowed the Stone Cliff Trail (classes 1 and 2 only). Due to public safety concerns, e-bikes will not be allowed on other trails where traditional bikes are currently allowed. The bikes shall be labeled showing the class of e-bike, or the operator shall carry documentation of the class of e-bike while operating within park boundaries. Class 1 e-bikes have a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph. Class 2 e-bikes have a motor that may be used exclusively to propel the bicycle, and that is not capable of providing assistance when the e-bike reaches 20 mph. Class 3 e-bikes have a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the e-bike reaches 28 mph.
