Mono County Summer Activities

A summer recreation paradise, Mono County is the place for outdoor adventures. Fishermen will find scores of alpine lakes and streams teeming with trout. Backpackers and hikers will enjoy hundreds of miles of trails that wind through the Inyo and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests, including the John Muir, Ansel Adams, and Hoover Wilderness areas.

Mountain bikers can take advantage of lift assisted Mammoth Mountain Bike Park, with miles of heart-pounding downhill and single track trails, and road bikers will love the smooth asphalt with minimal traffic.

Adventurers can view the Eastern Sierra from a saddle on an overnight horseback pack-trip, paddle among the tufa towers at Mono Lake, or drive your SUV on mapped back-country routes throughout Mono County.

World class granite brings world-class rock climbers.  Experienced mountain guides can lead the way.  In Mammoth Lakes, Sierra Star is California's highest 18-hole golf course, and nearby Snowcreek offers a 9-hole challenge.  Take a dip in a natural hot spring, and end your day sleeping under the stars.
