Mammoth Mountain All Season Destination

Mammoth Lakes is the premier destination in California for numerous mountain activities including skiing, hiking, biking and much more. 

Mammoth Lakes

The Mammoth Lakes Basin is located on Lake Mary Rd, just past the Village at Mammoth. This area features 5 main lakes that can be accessed by car in the summer. In the winter these lakes become much more isolated and can only be reached by x-c skis or snowshoes. It is an 8 mile round trip to see all 5 lakes. The groomed side of the trail requires a Mammoth Mountain x-c pass, however you are free to adventure on the ungroomed path adjacent to the ski trail. The main lakes featured on this trail are Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, Lake Mamie, Horseshoe Lake, and Lake George. However, there are several other lakes you can explore into the backcountry, experience required. During the summer time this area is a family friendly campground with summer activities like fishing, boating, sup boarding, and hiking. Be sure to keep your food in bear safe containers.
