The Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route runs roughly parallel to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail along the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. This route is characterized by volcanoes, long stretches of forested countryside, busy towns, deserts, orchards and everything in between.

Section 4
Leaving Truckee you'll circle the western half of Lake Tahoe, then climb into the Sierra Nevada. Several of the passes on this section are closed during the winter, and might not open until late spring/early summer if it's been a heavy snow year. You can check road opening dates on the California Department of Transportation's website listed on the map. There's a 65-mile stretch of riding U.S. Highway 395, a major thoroughfare on the eastern side of the range. At Lee Vining, you'll leave U.S. 395 and head west over Tioga Pass into Yosemite National park. Expect heavy traffic in the parks during the summer tourist season. There are technically three national parks on this section, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia, but the last two are administered together. When traveling through you may want to build in some extra days to explore activities off the bike like climbing in Yosemite or hiking the Trail of a Hundred Giants in the Giant Sequoia National Monument. Lake Isabella, the endpoint for section 4, is located northeast of Bakersfield. This section intersects the Western Express Bicycle Route in Woodfords, California.
