With 200 miles of dirt roads and 40 miles of trails, Idyllwild is a mountain biker's mecca. The challenging 17-mile Ramona Trail loop on Thomas Mountain is considered one of the best rides in the area. Easy and scenic, two-mile Coyote Run offers a different pace for day pedalers. Check out the San Bernardino National Forest page on trails and biking in and around Idyllwild and easy access from the inn.
