Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is famous for its ski trails, making it a superb winter destination. But did you know that you can enjoy it during summer, too? No matter the season, there are plenty of reasons to book your lodging at Mammoth Lakes. Here are some activities you can enjoy this summer:
Mammoth Lakes has two public golf courses, both surrounded by fantastic views of the clear mountain streams, meadows and fairways. Is having a high tee part of your fantasies? That will become a dream come true if you come and visit Mammoth Lakes’ golf courses, which offers both the challenge and beauty of elevation while you enjoy a game of golf.
The landscape in Mammoth Lakes is a natural wonder. The town is at the edge of a volcanic caldera; hence there are many geological wonders to behold, including craters, granite domes, outcroppings of white quartz and pure black obsidian, and much more. Sightseeing at Mammoth Lakes is an excellent activity that will definitely take your breath away.
Boating, Kayaking and Canoeing
There are many lakes around the area, and one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery is to take a boat out onto the water. Each lake in the area offers a view of different mountains: June Lake shows the beauty of Carson Peak, while you can best see Mammoth Mountain from Lake Mary. Bird watching is an activity you can enjoy at Mono Lake, where visitors have even spotted eagles from their boats.
Both mountain and road biking are options at Mammoth Lakes, where the scenery makes for a fulfilling ride. There are more than 20 kilometers of bike trails you can take in the area, with a path that climbs more than 1,000 feet in elevation from town. Once you reach the Mammoth Lakes Basin, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the mountains.
There are many ways to enjoy the California sun at Mammoth Lakes even without visiting the winter slopes. Plan your trip this summer and enjoy the scenic adventure!
