Panorama Dome Trail


Wind your way up through low-lying manzanita scrub to the treeless summit of aptly named Panorama Dome, where you will be rewarded with 360-degree lay-of-the-land views. An excellent, though short, section of single track gives expansive views of the backside of Mammoth Mountain, Twin Lakes, and the Mammoth Crest and, across town, the Long Valley Caldera and the White Mountains. With good firm soil, some minor roots and rocks to ride around or hop over, and fun turns through the trees, this is a good introduction to true cross-country single track mountain biking.

Please note that the Panorama Dome Hiking Trails are off limits to bikes.
