River Rafting in Yosemite
River Rafting in Yosemite National Park
Yosemite hosts 12 miles of bike tracks throughout the park. Rent a bike at either Yosemite Lodge (year-round, weather permitting) or Curry Village (summer only) or take your own with you! Helmets are must for children under 18 years of age but are also recommended for everyone else, they are available free of charge when renting a bicycle. Child carriers are not available. However, six-speed bicycles with child trailers, baby joggers and wheelchairs may be rented.
Bicycling is permitted on bike tracks and public roads only. Riding across meadows, through forests or on hiking trails is prohibited by park regulation. Off-trail riding is dangerous, damages vegetation and can injure wildlife. With the steep incline of the hill to Mirror Lake and the trail to Lower Yosemite Falls, and because many pedestrians walk on these routes, rental bicycles are not allowed. Cyclists are asked to park their bikes at the bottom of these hills and walk to the lake or to the falls due to these hazards.
Note: Yosemite Tours do not take reservations for Rafting.
