  • This is a family-friendly loop on groomed trails through Jeffrey pine forest and across open terrain with spectacular views of San Joaquin Ridge and Mammoth Mountain. For the best photo ops, time your trip for the Magic Hours of early morning or late afternoon. From the Shady Rest OSV staging area, follow the A trail north to the B trail. Follow this across the Mammoth Scenic Loop to the C trail. Turn right. Follow the C trail around the Inyo Craters, across Crater Flats, to the G trail. Turn right/south here and then right again when you come to the A trail. This will take you back to Shady Rest. Click here for current snowmobile grooming information. Winter recreation maps are available at the Mammoth Welcome Center and on the Inyo National Forest web site. Snowmobile riders are required to understand closure boundaries and stay out of closed areas.
