Where is Mammoth? Mammoth is located in central California. It is part of the Eastern Sierra Mountain range shared by our popular neighbor Yosemite. Mammoth is considered part of the "High Sierra Gold Country" as Mammoth had a gold mine back in the day. Highway 395 is the one and only way to get to Mammoth and then Highway 203 is a small road that leads right into town. Highway 203 becomes Main Street and Lake Mary Road. From Southern California you can take Highway 15 North or more popular is Highway 14 through the Mojave Desert. From the North you take Highway 395 South. It's an easy drive, flat and fast, but do be careful of the speed limits especially through the small towns. Drive safely.
