Explore a unique ecosystem within the park – an inland temperate rainforest – and do it on the back of a bike. Although the Carbon River Entrance of the Park is the closest entrance to major population centers, it remains the least visiting corner of the park. And the Carbon River Road is one of the few places mountain bikes are allowed within the national park. Soon to be added are bike racks at the trailheads along the road allowing for the unique experience of bike and hike outings. And since the 5.0-mile Carbon River Road is virtually level, it’ll be perfect for children, adults towing children and folks looking for an easy bike ride.
