Story

Up and down - and up and down again - around the contours of Mammoth Mountain. It really is hard to believe you can experience this much terrain within a few miles of town. Warm up is the Lakes Basin via Old Mammoth Road. Then it's on to the Main Lodge grind over Minaret Summit. Hold on tight for the bumpy descent into Red's Meadow, then take a deep breath for the steep climb back out. All finished off with a whoosh down Highway 203 and back through town followed by some cool down on the trails near Eagle Lodge.
The vista
Up
The early switchbacks
Water is as scarce as air up here
Lakes basin
These colors tho
Mammoth view 1
Mammoth view 2
Worth it for the views alone
An all-time favorite climb
We up here!
The fruit of a day's labors on the bike
Circumnavigated the whole mountain in one ride
