• For those who have their own mounts, some of the best, most scenic riding in the American West can be accessed from the parking lot and stables at Sierra Meadows Ranch (boarding available). Track Steve McQueen's Nevada Smith through the woods, meadows and sagebrush plateaus along the base of the Sherwins, or ride the Mammoth Rock Trail up to the Lakes Basin and beyond. The horse camp at Agnew Meadows provides the best staging area for trips down to Reds Meadow or up into the Ansel Adams Wilderness. To hire a beast or join a trail ride, try the Mammoth Lakes Pack Outfit or Reds Meadow Pack Station.
