Where else can you play a round of golf in the morning and take a Gondola Ride to 11,000 feet to share in the spectacular views? In Mammoth Lakes of course!
Below are nine great activities that you can do any fall day around the area.
- Go fishing – anglers will tell you that fall is their favorite time of year to fish in the Eastern Sierra. Fishing in fall is phenomenal! Try Twin Lakes, Lake Mary and Lake Mamie from the shore or by boat.
- Go for a hike – hiking in and around Mammoth Lakes are sure to get you some great viewing spots.
- See the fall colors at June Lake – Take Highway 395 north to the June Lake Loop, Highway 158. The 16-mile road passes through town, winds its way around the lakes and through alpine canyons. Enjoy the scenic overlook at Oh Ridge. Continue around the lake past Gull Lake to Silver Lake, which is sure to offer a color spectacle in the fall.
- Play a round of golf – Pick up the Fall Unlimited Play Pass for Sierra Star Golf Course and you’ll be playing in the fall foliage every day.
- See the falls at Reds Meadow and Devil’s Postpile – $10 per car to drive directly to the trailheads. Parking lots fill up by 11am, so be sure to get there early, or go later after 2pm.
- Enjoy the Autumn Beer Fest at June Lake – crafts, craft brewers, stunning views and fall foliage at Gull Lake are sure to impress.
- Gondola Rides for spectacular views – what better way to see the views than from 11,000 feet. Take a ride, enjoy the once in a lifetime view, at least if you’re visiting.
- Watch the sunset at Minaret Vista – grab a snack box of gourmet items at Bleu Handcrafted Foods and head up to 9,265 feet and watch the amazing views as the sun sets.
- Kayak on Lake Mary – paddle around the perimeter of the lake where you’ll see Crystal Crag towering high above the Mammoth Crest, and the fisherman along the shore.
