Snowshoeing

With more than 3 million acres of wilderness and public lands surrounding Mammoth Lakes, you can experience the serenity of nature anywhere your legs can take you. For quick and easy access to stunning mountain scenery, there is free public access to more than 140 miles (225 km) of track that winds throughout Mammoth Lakes and into the expanse of the Inyo National Forest. There is a public access point on the left side of the Lake Mary Loop at the Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center. There are also groomed trails that are accessible behind the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center and Shady Rest Park. Both groomed areas are open to Cross Country and Nordic skiers. Please be courteous by sharing the trail and staying out of the set tracks designated for cross country skiers.
