Caltrans District 9 Bicycle Maps

These maps are intended to assist those cycling within the District 9 area of California - Inyo, Mono, and eastern Kern Counties. One of the primary land uses in District 9 is recreation because of our deep desert valleys, high mountain ranges, rich National Parks, and the numerous lakes and streams in the Sierra Nevada. Because of the numerous campers, recreational vehicles, and large trucks traveling on the highways caution should be exercised when cycling and all roads are open to cycling in District 9 except a short stretch of freeway near Rosamond. Please carry the necessary and proper equipment for the type of trip you plan, since services can be far apart in some areas. Protection from the sun, wind, cold, and adequate water is extremely important throughout the district. No representation is made or intended as to the safety or fitness of the routes where bicycle travel is allowed. The State of California, the counties, and cities over whose facilities you may be traveling are not responsible for your safety. We welcome any suggestions for improvement or changes in bicycle facilities in our District. We hope you enjoy your cycling in this area.
