July 11th, 2022 @ 7 AM Good morning it’s a beautiful day up here in the Eastern Sierra. Looks like a great week to get out and enjoy some Summer time fun.

What to Do in Mammoth Lakes and around the Eastern Sierra

If you like Summertime adventures it’s prime time to come up to Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra.

The Mammoth Mountain Bike Park is now open to the Top with Off the Top and Skid Marks open. Most of the mid-mountain trails are also open, just a few more and 100% of the terrain will be up and running. Outside of the park Mammoth Rock Trail and Mountain View are great for a morning ride right now.

Hiking has been just awesome with mostly clear skies and not much of that Summertime haze yet. The wildflowers are peaking right now and the bugs have started to back off a bit.

Still my favorite hikes this Summer are the trail out of Mesquite flats at the top of Rock Creek Canyon. There are tons of short, mid, and long-range hikes in this area it’s just amazing. Get there early parking gets tight before 9 AM.

In the Mammoth Lakes Basin, a hike up to Arrowhead Lake combined with a swim is perfect during this hot month of July. Another favorite is Sky Meadows with all its wildflowers still going.

The fishing season has been going strong for the experienced Fisher Person. As I always say here find a good guide and don’t waste your time with no hookups.

If you’re planning on coming up over the next couple of months it would be advisable to have reservations in place for camping, hotels, and or a condo before you travel to the area.

Just about all area campgrounds are now open and full, to check for a campsite before you come to the area use this link and make a reservation

There is a lot to do at this time of the year, check out our full What To Do and What’s Open Report at this link.
