Iron Mountain is a steep, scenic and heavily hiked trail that starts on the North side of Highway 20. Expect open meadows, volcanic craggy rock formations and abundant wildflowers in season.
We recommend riding up the trail, connecting to Cone Peak Trail to form a clockwise loop back to Highway 2o to minimize bike use on this particular trail. Riding uphill should not cause any conflict with hikers. Avoid peak times and weekends when hikers may be out in droves. Ride responsibly, especially on the upper portions of this trail which are very hike-a-bike.
