Mountain Biking

Whether you're looking for a scenic, two-wheeled stroll, want to break the land speed record while catching some air along the way, or something in between the two, the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park has a trail or two just for you.

  • 70-plus miles of dirt single-track
  • Descend 3,000 feet from Mammoth's summit
  • From expansive vistas to pine tree corridors
  • Seven NEW freeride trails built in the last three seasons

Viewing Scenery

Scenic Gondola

The summit of Mammoth at 11,053 feet is perhaps the most stunning view you'll find in California. But don't be fooled by the remote elevation – once you reach the top you'll discover there's plenty to do. From the Sierra Interpretive Center to the Top Of The Sierra Café, you'll be amazed at what you find above 11,000 feet.
