Shuttle-Friendly Trailheads in the Mammoth Lakes

Getting around Mammoth Lakes Basin is probably even more hassle-free than you might imagine, thanks to the Mammoth Lakes Basin Trolley system that runs throughout the summer months. Simply take the free bus in front of your home to the Village at Mammoth and catch the Trolley to the Mammoth Lakes Basin.

Mammoth Lakes Basin is host to many trailheads, so do not relegate yourself to exploring just one of them. Plan ahead and know which trailheads you want to hit and when. They all offer spectacular sights, and many can be accessed via shuttle. A trip up any of these trails is the perfect way to spend the day with the family, friends, or simply hiking by yourself, enjoying every ounce of nature you experience.

Reds Meadow And Devils Postpile National Monument

Get ready to depart! There is a Reds Meadow Shuttle that you can take during the summer to access trailheads throughout Reds Meadow. Simply hop on the free bus that passes in from of your mountain rental and transfer at the Village at Mammoth to the Mammoth Adventure Center. At the Mammoth Adventure Center, you will purchase tickets to ride the bus into Reds Meadow and to the National Monument. This ticket includes your entrance fee into the national monument.

Reds Meadow has a variety of trailheads, and the variety pays off in stunning scenic views. Devils Postpile National Monument makes for an easy hike. This monument was proclaimed as such in 1911, and this formation is well worth the hike. This is a rare geologic shape that towers up to 60 feet above the ground.Before heading out, stop by the packing station in Reds Meadow to gather any supplies you might need. The hike from the main trailhead to Devils Postpile is only one mile with about 40 feet of elevation change.

Looking for something a bit more arduous? Try the hike to 101-foot Rainbow Falls, which is part of the national monument. It is a six mile round-trip hike.

A hike along the Agnew Meadows trail is an exciting one for expert hikers in excellent shape. The trailhead accesses Mammoth Lakes’ most recognizable peaks, “The Minarets” which includes Mt. Ritter and Banner Peaks.
