Lakes Basin and Sherwins Area Trail Enhancement Project Here is Kaiya identifying and recording a newly discovered heritage site. Our trail corridor is located at a safe distance to avoid impacts.
The Mammoth Ranger District of the Inyo National Forest proposes to implement trail improvements in the Lakes Basin and Sherwins Area to provide diverse trail-based recreational opportunities near the Town of Mammoth Lakes while protecting natural and cultural resources. Proposed improvements include construction of new non-motorized, multi-use trails accessing the Mammoth Lakes Basin from the Town of Mammoth Lakes, and creation of system-trails connecting users to different lakes and discrete facilities within the Mammoth Lakes Basin. The proposed trail improvements emphasize creation of new trails in areas of concentrated and existing use, while protecting sensitive riparian areas to minimize resource damage.
Multi-use paths around the downtown area and Old Mammoth are OPEN and being maintained to the best of the town’s ability. Please practice social distancing when passing or overtaking others!
