Vista Viewing

Vista Viewing from the Twin Lakes Vista

Do you have Vista Viewing Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • The Twin Lakes Vista is one of the most spectacular roadside viewpoints in the area, and a great introduction to the Mammoth Lakes Basin—for which the town of Mammoth Lakes was named! There's parking here and a bus stop on the Lakes Basin Trolley line, along with access to the paved Lakes Basin Path and the Panorama Dome mountain bike trails (across the road) as well as Mammoth Mountain Ski Area's Lakes Trail. Browse the interpretive signs about the region and soak up the views across Twin Lakes to Twin Falls and the Mammoth Crest, and out across the Mammoth Creek drainage to the Long Valley Caldera.
