This is an amazing area of Mammoth Lakes, the national monument is a short and easy hike from the Ranger Station and you can also hike to the beautiful Rainbow Falls and take a dip in it's pools in the summer to cool off. It makes for an incredible day spent in Mammoth.

This is a great little stroll through the forest to see the ruins of a gold mine operated in the 1920s and 1930s. You can also connect this trail to the trail up to Heart Lake.

This is about 15 mins south of Mammoth Lakes, off of the 395 and there is a resort, a restaurant with delicious food and a beautiful lake with dramatic views of the sheer rock cliffs. The trail takes you all around the lake and it's an easy 2.5 mile stroll for the whole loop. It gets windy in the afternoon so make sure that you have layers.

This is a great dining option if it's late at night and you don't feel like cooking. Their pizza is delish, and so are their pasta options.
