Best route in Yosemite

mostly very good surfaces except on Evergreen and Hardin Flat roads but they are still very enjoyable if you're careful. The climbs are not steep on this route, except on Hardin "Flat", but Hardin parallels hwy 120 and is avoidable if desired. the first mile of Cherry Creek road is 7-9% also We'll ride a total of 9 miles on highway 120, which has a decent shoulder and mostly light traffic, but it also has a rumble strip. A mirror is very helpful there imo.

lots of variety of scenery and terrain, lots of creeks and clear rivers and water falls this time of year. All the water is the main attraction on this route, and the great roads of course

The drive is against traffic in both directions (on weekdays), and was super smooth when I drove it last week.

bikes are charged $20 to enter the park but If you have a pass, you can bring 3 riders in with you.

also, Ride w/GPS seems to over estimate the amount of climbing by about 10%,

Best route in Yosemite

mostly very good surfaces except on Evergreen and Hardin Flat roads but they are still very enjoyable if you're careful. The climbs are not steep on this route, except on Hardin "Flat", but Hardin parallels hwy 120 and is avoidable if desired. the first mile of Cherry Creek road is 7-9% also We'll ride a total of 9 miles on highway 120, which has a decent shoulder and mostly light traffic, but it also has a rumble strip. A mirror is very helpful there imo.

lots of variety of scenery and terrain, lots of creeks and clear rivers and water falls this time of year. All the water is the main attraction on this route, and the great roads of course

The drive is against traffic in both directions (on weekdays), and was super smooth when I drove it last week.

bikes are charged $20 to enter the park but If you have a pass, you can bring 3 riders in with you.

also, Ride w/GPS seems to over estimate the amount of climbing by about 10%,
