for the ride up on Sunday, it is an intermediate/easy gravel road. i would say noob friendly, but i've seen some folks struggle on the first steep uphill. overall, it's pretty easy gravel rocky road.
here's a google map link.
i just googled "Bishop Silver Canyon Road"
it's roughly 45 minutes from camp to Bishop. then maybe 1 -2 hours up to the top.
from camp to Bishop, on the bike, take Diablo Road( you head east on Benton Crossing ). dirt super highway. cuts out all the highway riding.
if you are trucking to Bishop to ride up, park at the LAWS Railroad Museum. gear up. ride to the top. your truck will be fine.
there is a possibility that i will drive my bike to some of my riding spots over the weekend, so you might not see my WHITE FORD VAN until late. sometimes i return at sundown or later. i will be in CAMP SPOT #73 in the horseshoe loop we are all camping in.
