Old Mammoth Road - Winter Trails

For in-town recreation in Mammoth Lakes in winter, snowshoers and cross country skiers park at the end of Old Mammoth Road and follow the snowbound path of the road uphill until it meets with Lake Mary Road (also snowbound in winter) and its Lakes Basin cross country ski trails. The fee-based Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center is also located in the Lakes Basin. From here, explore winter trails around Horseshoe Lake and Lake Mary. Snowmobiling is permitted in mid-April (check reports).
