XC Style trails north of Mammoth and around Tioga Pass
Does anyone know of any good xc style trails north of Mammoth and on Tioga Pass? What is a good bike shop in Mammoth to get maps and info?
Footloose is the shop to go to in Mammoth.
There isn't much riding near Tioga Pass, but what is there is ok and scenic. Only a few miles of trail total.
The trail to the old Bennetville site starts across the road from Tioga lake.
You can also ride a loop around Saddlebag Lake.
There are a few ways to connect the Bennetville/Saddlebag rides as a loop.
At the base of Tioga near the 120/395 junction is a an info board that gives the info on the "Mountains and Moraines" mtb trail. It's scenic but very sandy in parts, and you'll often be buzzed by atvs. Dirt road riding.
There is some singletrack in the June Lake area as well.
Bunch of stuff around Bridgeport that is best described as exploratory and adventure riding.
Turns out cows and fishermen build some ok singletrack.
If you want quality XC, your only real bet is Mammoth proper. Lots of XC on the mountain and a pedal pass is $10.
Cool, thanks for taking the time to pass on the information.
