Brown_Teeth· just along for the ride
We are camping there so we will be bring bikes and do some exploring... also will bring a big tub of insect repellent:thumbsup:HarryCallahan said:I think you'd have to climb out of the valley Devil's Postpile is in to go any distance. As others have noted, the road in and out is closed to private autos 12 hours a day, unless you are going in to camp. But you can bike in or out at any time.
Devil's Postpile itself is a national monument, but it is surrounded by National Forest. In some directions, you hit wilderness boundaries pretty quickly. And you are down in the San Joaquin River canyon, which cuts a big, deep swath through the Sierras.

You're right. There are some private cars allowed. For example, there's a campground with a store and all at the bottom of the valley at the end of the road. I can't recall the name of it, but it's at the turnaround.
