Mammoth Lakes Trail System - National Trails Day - Panorama Dome - June 4th

June 4 is the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day, the country’s largest celebration of trails. National Trails Day events take place in every state across the country and include hikes, biking and horseback rides, paddling trips, birdwatching, geocaching, gear demonstrations, stewardship projects and more. Here in Mammoth Lakes, we’re going to celebrate by giving back to some of our precious local treasures, the trails of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System up on Panorama Dome.

Please join SEMBA, the Sierra Eastside Mountain Biking Association, and Footloose Sports at 8:30 AM on Saturday, June 4 at the Panorama Dome Trailhead on Lake Mary Road for the first event in a season of trail maintenance on the Mammoth Lakes Trail System. Volunteers will be installing new soft surface trail signage, conducting trail maintenance, and taking on a general clean up on and around Panorama Dome. I will also be sharing an overview of all of the exciting things that are happening this summer on the Mammoth Lakes Trail System. Volunteers will get an introduction to trail maintenance skills from Friends of the Inyo staff, and those interested in being regular members of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System stewardship team should be sure to show up June 4 to get trained up for future SOS projects.

We’ll be kicking things off with the traditional Bagel Breakfast brought to you by Old New York Deli. A free gourmet lunch – brought to you by Sunrise Rotary and Bleu Handcrafted foods – caps off your day of trail work, along with raffle prizes and free giveaways, which are always part of the fun. Trail Days are made possible by the Town of Mammoth Lakes, the Inyo National Forest, Mammoth Lakes Recreation, and Mammoth’s own Measure R. And special thanks to KMMT Radio for providing some priceless airtime to let everybody in on the fun!

All ages and abilities are welcome, and we love to see families and clubs. Please arrive dressed for trail work (long pants, sun protection, sturdy close-toed shoes), and don’t worry if you can’t make it quite at 8:30; we can check you in and send you off to a task in progress anytime before 10:30 a.m.

Close-toed shoes and long pants required; please carpool if you can, or hop a ride on the Lakes Basin Trolley.
