Mammoth Mountain Biking
A great way to enjoy the glorious scenery of Mammoth is mountain biking. The
vast network of mountain bike trails and unpaved
roads within the Inyo National Forest offers the mountain biker
an almost unlimited number of environments
and views to discover. The crisp autumn air, sunshine, uncrowded
conditions and brilliant fall foliage makes for an unbeatable combination.
As the temperatures warm up and the snow begins to melt during the
spring months of May and June, enjoy mountain biking on one of our
freshly thawed trails. Tour the sites as the winter snows melt into
a glorious blend of rushing streams and alpine lakes.
