This was a really fun trail on our Dualsport motorcycles. I'm not terribly experienced but it was pretty easy, even the water crossings. You can go all the way to The Bristlecone Pine Forest.

The road out of Bishop area is called Silver Canyon you will cross a creek minimum of 4 times depending on time of year with a water depth up to 2 feet, it is steep with lots of switch backs all the way to the top on to Bristleconepine road. At certain points the inclimb is more then 20% High clearance 4×4 only, so no Subaru
Do not attempt this road when you encounter snow, the chance of sliding off the mountain is very high.
