Family Biking the Horseshoe Lake Loop from Twin Falls Overlook

Do you have Biking Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • Biking around Horseshoe Lake starting from the Twin Falls Overlook is a great family-friendly biking experience combining paved multi-use path and a wide, mostly-flat dirt trail. Enjoy the views of the Owens Valley and the lower Lakes Basin as you set out on the Lakes Basin Path. Beyond the Horseshoe Lake parking area enjoy the silence of the old forest and the seven bridges crossing over the lake's various feeder streams. Be aware of other bikers and hikers and keep your eyes up for good views through the trees. On a warm day, take a quick dip in the lake before you take the path back to the overlook!
