The gravel road to South Tufa is open. South Tufa is the best place to see Mono Lake's iconic Tufa towers. There is a one-mile loop trail that takes you down to the shore and through the largest accessible Tufa area next to Mono Lake. Signs along the way give visitors an excellent self guided tour. All resources are protected so only take pictures. Children 15 & under are free while adults are $3 per person. We accept the Interagency Passes as payment. Guided tours are now available on Saturday, Sunday at 1 pm. Meet at the information kiosk.
