Mammoth Lakes Things to Do: 80 reviews and 156 photos
From the Top of the Sierra Interpretive Center, walk outside and take a short trail to the windy, barren, and alpine summit of Mammoth Mountain. The 11,053 foot mountain is a volcano that last erupted 50,000 years ago. From here, there is an outstanding 360 degree view that includes Mono Lake, Mount Dana, Long Valley, the town of Mammoth, Glass Mountain, Boundary Peak, White Mountain Peak, Mt. Morrison, the Mammoth Crest, the Silver Divide, the canyon of the Middle Fork San Joaquin River, the Minarets, Mt. Ritter, Banner Peak, and Mt. Lyell. Although this view is astonishing, you can walk to an even better one (though it is somewhat limited). Walk north along a windy ridge to a viewpoint on one of the mountain's lower summits, where there is an astonishing view down to the Mammoth Lakes Basin, including Horseshoe, George, Mamie, Mary, Barrett, McLeod, and TJ Lakes.
Directions: Ride the Panorama Gondola from Mammoth Ski Lodge
