"Mammoth Lakes" Other Mountains / Lakes Tip by goingsolo
Other Mountains / Lakes, California: 9 reviews and 8 photos
Favorite thing: After Mount Whitney, this name seemed a bit of a misnomer. But this charming ski town was a great place to rejuvenate in the summer. Mammoth Lakes is a bit like Vail on a smaller scale. Mammoth Mountain is a popular ski destination in the winter, the less crowded summertime offers lots of opportunities to hike, bike and explore. You can also take a gondola ride up the mountain or just browse the shops in town. The higher elevation means cooler temperatures as well.
Less than an hour from Mammoth Lakes, you'll find some of the most beautiful scenery of the Sierras. Areas such as Rock Creek and Mosquito Flats are hardly appealing sounding names. But they contain a lifetime's worth of hiking opportunities. For more information, feel free to browse my Mammoth Lakes page.
