Big Pine to Lida Junction
Length: 84 miles
Driving Time: 2 hours
Route: Whether you're heading from Vegas to Yosemite or vice-versa, the 168 and 266 highways are throttles-full of fun, even if you're not pushing the limits of the bike or your skills.
Where to Stop: Coppertop BBQ in Big Pine, rated the top restaurant in the country by Yelp. And Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is a short detour — we suggest the Schulman Grove Visitor Center because the entire route is paved — and the home of pine trees that are thousands of years old.
