    Cycling the Lakes Basin Path
    By Monica Prelle

    The newly constructed Lakes Basin Bike Path starts near the Village at Mammoth on Lake Mary Road, climbs five miles, and ascends more than 1,000 vertical feet to Horseshoe Lake. The paved path is a great place to test your fitness on a bike, running, or walking. Views of the Mammoth Crest and Mammoth Rock will not disappoint.

    If you prefer downhill biking or walking, you can take the town trolley; it departs from a stop at the bottom of the stairs to the Westin on Canyon Boulevard and will take you (and your bike) to a number of stops in the Lakes Basin, including Tamarack Lodge at Twin Lakes and Horseshoe Lake.

    Note: the Lakes Basin Path is not maintained in the winter.

    Funny Name, Good Coffee

    Baseball Fan or Not, the Food is Good
    By Monica Prelle

    Toomey’s is one of the better casual dining options in Mammoth and is conveniently located in the Village on Minaret Boulevard. Chef Matt Toomey is a baseball fan, so you can most likely catch the game at the restaurant and check out his collection of memorabilia too. Baseball fan or not, the food is good, the staff is friendly, and the service is quick.

    Order just about anything at the walk-up counter, but locals love the buffalo meatloaf and carne asada tacos. If you are in the mood to splurge, try one of the nightly specials or the rack of New Zealand elk.

    Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    For the Love of a Gourmet Meal at Home
    By Monica Prelle

    A good meal at home without cooking is nearly impossible, but now you can fill up your refrigerator with gourmet food from Bleu Handcrafted Foods. House-cured meats, duck confit, and a selection of artisan cheeses are mostly ready to eat or require little preparation. Don't forget the olives or the almonds, and pick up a bottle of wine to pair with your meal.

    Local’s tip: taste the samples and order a box lunch for your next hike.

    Hiking or skiing to the tune of “pizza and beer and chicken wings”? Giovanni’s specialty pizzas served on your choice of crust are arguably the best pies in the Eastern Sierra.

    The bar at Giovanni’s has a number of high-definition flat screen televisions so you can watch your favorite team play while you eat.

    Delivery and take-out are available.

    Dog Walking at Horseshoe Lake
    By Monica Prelle

    The locals say that there is nearly one dog per person in Mammoth Lakes. Whether or not that’s true no one really knows, but the town and surrounding area is, in fact, a dog paradise. Horseshoe Lake is the unofficial "dog beach" and the most popular spot for taking Jack Dog on a walk.

    The sandy shore and a two-mile trail that circles the lake combine to make Horseshoe Lake an ideal destination for four-legged visitors. The lake is also popular among runners and mountain bikers.

    Located at the end of Lake Mary Road in the Mammoth Lakes Basin, Horseshoe Lake can be accessed by car, foot, bike, or trolley. Local etiquette: good dogs are allowed off-leash. Please pick up after your pet.

    Fly Fishing at Hot Creek
    By Monica Prelle

    Not only is Hot Creek the premier fly-fishing destination in the Eastern Sierra, but it is also situated in a spectacular landscape. Natural mineral springs bubble up in the creek creating nutrient-rich water and the ideal habitat for bugs, which trout love to eat. The California Department of Fish and Game has found more than 8,000 trout per mile of water at Hot Creek. Bald eagles and osprey frequent the area and can be seen perched on the cliffs and in trees above the canyon.

    The creek is named for the hot springs that boil up from a magma chamber deep below the earth’s surface, though the hot pools have been deemed dangerous and are currently closed to swimmers. A paved path leads down to the creek from the main parking area for viewing and fishing access.

    Hot Creek is open year-round for catch and release fly-fishing with barbless hooks. The Troutfitter Guide Service offers beginner and advanced fly-fishing trips to Hot Creek and other area rivers and lakes.

    A prime section of water at Hot Creek Ranch is private, but can be fished with a guide. Cabin rentals are also available.

    Hiking to Crystal Lake
    By Monica Prelle

    Crystal Crag is a giant rock monolith situated in front of the Mammoth Crest. Nestled behind the crag is its namesake lake. Take the trail from the Lake George parking area up for 1.5 miles to get to Crystal Lake. The hike is relatively short, but it is a strenuous and steep climb. A cool dip and the view of the lakes below make it worthwhile.

    Break for Baked Goods in Mammoth Lakes
    By Andi Fisher

    Paul Schat's Bakery is a local favorite, so the lines are a bit nuts, but if you are looking for fresh baked pastries before heading out to hike or ski (or any other outdoor activity in Mammoth Lakes) then you want to stop at Schat's. Dutch by heritage, the bread is "softer" than say, a traditional French bakery, but tasty none-the-less. Cookies, pastries, bagels, and a must-try jalapeño bread, you can't go wrong no matter what you choose.
