Mammoth Lakes Travel Resources

Mammoth Lakes travel businesses

Mammoth is an understatement when referring to the endless possibilities for fun and adventure in this breathtaking area of California. Mammoth Lakes is an epicenter of all things active, adventurous, and awesome to do outside, with friends or as a family. In the summer there are miles upon miles of gorgeous hiking trails leading to tall summits with epic views. Keep your eyes out for bears, mountains lions, deer, elk, wild mustangs and more wildlife, including over 300 species of birds. There are also biking and horseback riding trails to boot. If you feel like going vertical, grab a guide, get on the cliffs and climb to those summits. Just 45 minutes south of Yosemite National Park, you can climb, hike and bike with the biggest, baddest professionals, and cliff faces, out there.

In the winter Mammoth Mountain and its little sister June Mountain get pounded with 400 inches of snow over their more than 3,500 acres of terrain. If the steep chutes, expansive bowls, and powder filled trees on Mammoth Mountain seem too “crowded” for you, take a back country or snow cat ski or snowboard tour.

To see the big picture, take a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter ride over the mountains and valleys of the Mammoth Lakes Basin. Sightsee your way to Devils’ Postpile National Monument and then snap some pictures at the 101-foot Rainbow Falls. Transport yourself back in time, and maybe see a ghost, at Bodie State Historical Park, an abandoned gold mining town from the late 1800s. Take a refreshing dip in Horseshoe Lake or a rent a kayak, canoe, or windsurf to enjoy the water.

Mammoth Lakes is chock full of wilderness and outdoor pursuits, and the area is also big on building culture in the community. Visit anytime throughout the year for music, food, wine, and arts and crafts festivals. Come to Mammoth Lakes with a sense of adventure and leave with a sense of awe and wonder.
