Welcome to the Mammoth Lakes Trail System!

The Mammoth Lakes Trail System offers boundless recreation opportunities on more than 300 miles of trails. From granite crags to trout-stocked lakes, pine forests to alpine meadows, there’s something for all seasons, interests and abilities, motorized and non-motorized alike. Managed jointly by the Town of Mammoth Lakes and the Inyo National Forest, the system includes connections to three wilderness areas, Devils Postpile National Monument, the Pacific Crest Trail and more. Many of these attractions are accessible right from the center of town! Explore MammothTrails.org and discover the adventures of a lifetime.


Trail System Update

  • Thanks to the drought busting winter of 2017, many trails above 9000 feet are still covered in snow. Caution Extremely High Stream Crossings.
