Yosemite tour 140-41.
Yosemite tour, a 118 mile loop. This is a 118 mile Loop ride, leaving from the fairgrounds you head south down hwy 49 to Oakhurst where you’ll intersect Highway 41 that will take you through Fishcamp and into Yosemite proper. At mile 45 you’ll find the Wawona Hotel that offers lunch in their dining room from 11:30 until 2 PM daily. If you’d prefer to go on the lighter side there are several lunch options to be found in Yosemite Village at mile 72. There you’ll find delis in and cafe’s, serving soups, salads, pizzas, and baked goods. Returning to the route, you’ll proceed down Northside drive which will take you to the intersection of hwy 140 “El portal road.” This will take you along the Merced River, out of the park and back into the town of Mariposa where you can easily return to the fairgrounds. Before leaving for this ride, please make sure and check for the current conditions inside the park as flooding in the valley is possible along the Merced river. Remember that the Big Oak Flat or hwy 120 entrance to the park is closed due to road damage. Given the major holiday, I would recommend that you enjoy this route on either Thursday or Friday to avoid the weekend crowds if possible. There are stores and services all along the route but it would be prudent to fuel up in Oakhurst if need be. This would be a 6-hour ride at best. Plan accordingly.
