It’s not just the pristine waters, Bass Lake is world-renowned for its mountain bike trails. Beginners can have a blast all around the lake, but mountain biking masters have also been known to flock to this region. With trails like 007 on Old Central Camp Road, or the reconditioned trails on Goat Mountain, riders can find every level of adventure.  

Intermediate Trails:

Goat Mountain | Forks Trail – 8 miles round trip. Note: Bike to top of Goat Mountain to the Fire Lookout tower. Watch for poison oak.

Goat Mountain | Spring Cove – 8 miles round trip. Note: Bike from Spring Cove campground to Fire Lookout tower. Watch for poison oak.

Advanced Trails:

Central Camp Road |Trail 007 – from 3 miles to as long as 20 miles. Note: Best done on a long travel full-suspension bike.

Willow Creek Trail – from 3 miles to as long as 20 miles. Note: This is a double-black-diamond ride best done on a full-suspension bike with at least 5 inches of travel.

Publisher of Sierra Rec Magazine. An avid hiker and explorer of mountain lifestyle and adventure. I love to discover new trails, hike along rivers and hang a hammock along the shores of a mountain lake. I often great people on the trail and have found some of my favorite places from the advice of people I meet in the Wilderness. I love the sierra and just like sharing what I know.
