Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Henry Coe State Park Mountain-Bike Camping / Day 4: Mississippi Lake to Jackrabbit Lake 30

Today's beautiful 13.8-mile ride is largely downhill or level (with numerous short uphills along the way): from Mississippi Lake at 2200 feet, down to 1080 feet on Orestimba Creek Road, then up to about 1300 feet at Jackrabbit Lake.

Highlights on this very hot day include spectacular views over the Orestimba Wilderness from above on County Line Road, and the idyllic, isolated feel of the Jackrabbit Lake area.
