Spring time in Mammoth Lakes presents quite a dilemma. For Mammoth locals and visitors, the biggest question each day is deciding which of the many activities to chose.
Starting in May, the daily question is should we hike, bike, run, fish, golf or climb today?
All local roads are open including those usually still closed this time of year. This includes Lake Mary Road with access to the Lakes Basin — this road takes you to many lakes where the fish are waiting and also provides easy access to many trail heads. This is only a partial list of activities and venues opening in May 2015.
