HORSEBACK RIDING in Mammoth
Giddy Yap! Another great way to see Mammoth country is by horseback.
Pack Stations offer hour-long,
half- and full-day rides as well as week-long excursions into the
Ansel Adams and John Muir wildernesses. Some of the packers also
do cattle and horse drives, usually
in the beginning and end of the season. Mammoth Lakes Basin is a
very popular ride passing by a historic gold mine and mining camp.
Other favorites include the Mammoth Rock trail and guided rides
along Convict Lake, McGee Canyon and Red's Meadow.
Your best bet is to call as
far in advance as possible to reserve space. If you wait to the
last moment, there are no guarantees as their area quotas and limits
as to how many head of horse can be out on the trails.
Relax and enjoy the Sierra scenery while the horses do what they love. Head out into the backcountry for a true wilderness experience you will never forget. Experienced and amateur riders alike will enjoy this outdoor activity.
