The award winning Welcome Center and staff is the first step in making the most out of your visit to Mammoth Lakes. Located within the Inyo National Forest, it is operated by the US Forest Service, National Park Service and Mammoth Lakes Tourism which means it’s a one stop shop for visitors. Beyond the thoughtfully stocked books, maps and gift shop, the center offers free interpretive walks and talks. Just outside front door is access to trails for cross country in winter and biking in summer.
