Eastern Sierra Mountain Biking Report
Monday, October 10th, 2022 @ 12:12 PM – Been really nice weather to ride in all areas of the Eastern Sierra over the last couple of weeks. Snowman has been going on some rides down at Chipmunk Canyon and the dirt has been great.
Heard that the riding out on Mammoth Mountain has been perfect, just make sure you have layers as it’s chilly out on the hill these days with highs in the 50s now.
Wednesday, September 21st, 2022 @ 3:15 PM – Good afternoon, been a chilly few days in the high country with some snowflakes out on Mammoth Mountain at times. Moving forward there will be a nice warming trend for the weekend and most of next week for some perfect fall riding conditions up here in the Eastern Sierra.
Mammoth Mountain Bike Park: is now closed for the season as far as lifts and trail crews go. You can still ride out in the park, just watch for construction crews, especially around Main Lodge.
Mountain Biking in Mammoth: Mammoth Rock Trail and all the little side trails off of Sherwin Creek Road are in prime shape right now. The dirt out at Shady Rest is a bit more set up now so give the local trails in that area or the Knolls Loop a try.
Riding out on National Forest Service: Still some good riding on local trails and service roads. You will find some sandy or loose dirt especially east of the 395 at this time. For USFS trails, I would advise you to check out Mountain View and the Knolls Loop.
For those looking to ride in the High Desert or Bishop area, mornings are the time to ride Chipmunk and the other trails you find in the area.
Lower Rock Creek Canyon is a blast again, with way fewer people on the trail now that the Fall season is here.
Overall the riding moving forward will be great with cooler days and it won’t be long until the Fall Colors are out.
Ride on Snowman… 🙂
More Video Action from the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park
Been out getting a ton of content this Summer out in the Bike Park. Below are the 1st edits on some of the trail videos we are working on. Have a bunch more content to film via POV and soon walk-down stop-and-go shots.
I want to thank Mammoth Mountain for providing access to the hill this Summer. Been a ton of fun riding up and down the lifts, always just used to get a peddle pass, ha never again.
