Mazourka Canyon Road runs parallel to Highway 395 between the towns of Independence and Big Pine and offers a remote and rugged ride along the edge of the Inyo Mountains Wilderness. Sights along the route include historic mining sites and a side trop to Mazourka Peak. The ride is easy-to-moderate in difficulty. The first half is maintained gravel road that is passable by all vehicles but the second half becomes steep, rocky, and narrow in places requiring a high-clearnce 4x4 vehicle. There are also multiple side trip options available that can be used to explore more of the area but make sure to stay on designated routes. SUVs can complete the whole distance in half a day as a through-trip but ATVs, UTVs, and motorcycles that aren't street legal will have to return the way they came for a longer day trip.
