We’ll climb Rock Creek Road, the highest paved road in California, to Mosquito Flat (el. 10,220’).  SHORT route starts at Tom’s Place and climbs upper Rock Creek Road, while LONG route riders add Lower Rock Creek Road. LONG riders can park at the bottom (see directions) or can park at Tom’s Place (a more secure location) and descend/climb the lower section before starting their ascent of upper section. EZ START riders (need carpool) do the upper climb, then descend all the way down to the bottom of Lower Rock Creek to meet their carpool. Lunch is near the summit at Rock Creek Resort (aka “Pie in the Sky”). This ride is co-listed with ACTC.

NOTE: Most participants will check out of their Mammoth Lakes accommodations before riding and check into Bishop accommodations after the ride.
