|Grooming Begins on Multi-Use Winter Trail Network
(February 10, 2021) –
It snowed, and then it snowed, and then it snowed some more. The final tally was somewhere in the 100’s of inches for parts of the Eastern Sierra. The end of January storm dumped enough snow for the Inyo National Forest and Mammoth Lakes Trail System to begin grooming the winter trail networks.
The Mammoth Lakes Trail System has published a FREE
downloadable Winter Recreation Handout
with safety, etiquette and use information. The map details both the motorized and non-motorized allowed uses on the various trails throughout the network. One of the newest uses is fat-bikes. In 2018, the Inyo NF announced over snow fat-biking opportunities
on the groomed network. If you’re thinking of trying out a fat-bike, be sure to review the guidelines on the Winter Recreation Handout. (*Electric fat-bikes are allowed only on motorized trails.)
Get out there and enjoy this spectacular trail network and give the groomers a socially distanced high-five thank you when you see them!
