Summer is slowly creeping up in elevation in Mono County after an incredible record-setting winter and well above average snowfall. As the snow melts, conditions are changing quickly. Roads, campgrounds, hiking trails, lakes and streams, and other activities are starting to reopen and thaw out, but many are delayed due to snow and damage. Please see below for current Mono County road conditions, lakes and trails that are snow and ice free, waterfalls that are accessible to view, and a few things to keep in mind as you visit and recreate in Mono County this spring and summer. 

We will do our best to update this page at least bi-weekly.
