Mammoth Lakes Things to Do: 80 reviews and 156 photos
The Inyo Crater Lakes are two small lakes nestled in the Inyo Craters, a string of volcanos. From the parking area/trailhead, a 1/4-mile long (one-way) trail leads to the lakes. The trail is a gentle uphill, passing through forest to the first crater, a barren crater with a peciluarly beautiful green lake in its mouth. The second crater, only a little farther down, is engulfed in the forest, and has a barely visible pond in its center. This is a nice short hike and somewhat more of a worthwhile place to visit than Earthquake Fault.
Directions: Off the Mammoth Scenic Loop; a small gravel road points out the Inyo Craters, follow it.
