Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2008: Bikepacking in Henry Coe State Park / Day 7: Pacheco Camp to China Hole by bicycle, Henry Coe State Park 42

I followed this route along Coit Road, Mahoney Meadows Road, and China Hole Trail for the first time on last year's bicycle-camping trip here, and liked it. The day ends with a scary yellowjacket sting.

To my relief, today is less hot than the past few days. I travel 12.2 bicycle miles from 1689 feet at Pacheco Camp to 1100 feet at China Hole, with about 1600 feet of elevation gain along the way.
