Roads for exploration

In addition to hiking trails, Big Basin has mountain bike and equestrian trails. While dogs are not allowed on trails, they are allowed on paved roads, which are just as scenic and serene. These roads also offer a greater level of accessibility to those who might not be able to take on the more rugged hiking trails.
