HWY 158 Bike Loop

There are many ways to approach this ride, so feel free to adjust.  You can park at June Lake Beach, which provides ample parking, restrooms and a good a rest area for after the ride.  This is also where the June Lake Triathlon starts, in case you are training. From the June Lake Beach turn right on North Shore Drive, then left on the June Lake Loop heading back to HWY 395. At the junction with Highway 395 turn left, riding north. In 7 miles, turn left on to Highway 158 at the north end of the June Lake Loop before Lee Vining. You’ll ride past Grant Lake, and Silver Lake. At June Mountain turn left on North Shore Drive to stay on the  bike route.  This will bring you up and over Gull Lake and June Lake and descend back to your June Lake Beach turn.  You can also do this route backwards, but the elevation gain stays about the same.
