Mountain Biking Elephant Rock Loop

  Add a review
#787 of 1,005 mountain bike trails in California
#17,176 in the world

The highlights of this 7000 foot elevation ride are splendid views of Union Reservoir and Elephant Rock Lake. They lie cradled in the ancient, iceberg-scarred granite of this very scenic Sierra area. The ride is moderately long on mostly level terrain, providing an enjoyable experience for riders of all skill levels. Please note that the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness is quite near on the north and east, and remember that mountain bikes are not allowed within the designated Wilderness. The best spot to begin and end this ride is the gravel parking lot at the end of 7N75 on the south side of Union Reservoir.
