Bicycles are allowed on park roads only.

Be aware park roads have narrow or no shoulders, and often carry heavy traffic. To minimize conflicts with vehicles, plan your ride for the early morning hours.

Try to be off the road in late afternoon when thunderstorms and lightening create serious hazards.
