Mammoth Mountain-Mammoth Pass Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A broad, monolithic peak looming above the town of Mammoth Lakes. Of the eye-arresting summits in the area as seen from Highway 395, Mammoth is the big, wide one. Offering a relatively easy hike, it is a fine introduction to the high country and a good orientation to the area. Take the trail designed for hikers only—but even then, watch out for mountain bikes. The trail starts in the shade of large Jeffrey pines and soon winds around the north and west sides of the peak in open country. The trail reaches the top from the west."
--Jay Anderson, Climbing California's Mountains (Falcon Guides).
"Located in the town of Mammoth Lakes in the Inyo National Forest. Highlights: Over 70 miles of singletrack. Gondola or ski lift to the top. No climbing! Hazards: Steep cliffs. Loose gravel descents. Windy at the top. Adults $23 fee, children $20 fee."
--Mark Ross & Brad Fine, Mountain Biking Southern California (Falcon Guides).
You cant beat a perfect mountain with inexpensive lift access for all riding styles. The downhill trail are just plain amazing. Beginner riders should stick with anything under a black diamond. Lots of natural stunts and also man made stunts. Mammoth is also a great vacation spot for all people and familys!
