• A short and eminently worthwhile jaunt, this trail begins from Lake Mary Road, just up and across from its junction with Twin Lakes Road. Wind your way up through low-lying manzanita scrub to the treeless summit of aptly named Panorama Dome, where you will be rewarded with 360-degree lay-of-the-land views of the Lakes Basin, the Mammoth Crest, the southern flank of Mammoth Mountain and, across town, the Long Valley Caldera and the White Mountains, which top out at an impressive 14,252 feet.
