Trail System Update
- Fire restrictions in place. Ongoing drought conditions and well below average rain and snowfall this past winter have led to very dry conditions for this time of year. Please visit the Inyo National Forest website for more information.
Fall Color Viewing
The Eastern Sierra has often been named one of the top destinations in the West for fall color viewing.
Hiking along the Mammoth Lakes Trail System offers experiences unique to this part of the Eastern Sierra.
Convict Lake Loop 2.0 mi
This easy and scenic stroll follows the shoreline around Convict Lake, providing a classic introduction to the dramatic landscape of the Eastern Sierra.
Shady Rest Path 0.8 mi
One of the most popular sections of the paved multi-use path network within the Mammoth Lakes Trail System, the Shady Rest Path meanders gently downhill through the woods from Highway 203 to Shady Rest Town Park.
Convict Lake's rugged alpine backdrop and bright-blue water with skies to match make it a favorite destination just south of Mammoth Lakes. Popular recreation includes fishing, hiking and sightseeing.
