All of the Destinations

  • The Eastern Sierra is truly breathtaking, with dizzying peaks that touch the clouds and alpine lakes so clear, you can watch the trout swim to your lure. Unique geologic features, such as Crystal Crag and the Inyo Craters, are but a short hike from easily accessible trailheads, while cascading waterfalls such as Twin Lakes Falls are visible from a leisurely bike ride through the Lakes Basin. No matter how you want to get there, the Mammoth Lakes Trail System will deliver you to a spectacular array of destinations that will keep your camera’s memory card full and your eyes wider than the vistas they take in.
