On July 8th and 9th, the Mammoth Lakes Trail System will host a very special free workshop led by renowned trail builder Woody Keen and supported by a crew of distinguished trail experts from around the region. The two day workshop is designed to educate those interested in better understanding SMARTER trails: Sustainable, Manageable, Artistic Recreational Trails that are Ecologically sound and have good Risk Management Strategy.
Due to warming temperatures and rapidly melting snow the winter grooming program at Shady Rest is officially finished for the season. Though short lived, the winter fat biking pilot program was a terrific success and the Mammoth Lakes Trail System team will be continuing efforts next winter to provide another great groomed multi-use trail experience at Shady Rest.
The Mammoth Lakes Trail System team is pleased to announce the start of a winter fat biking pilot program as a newly allowed use of the current winter trail system initiating from Shady Rest Park. To help introduce the great fun of this activity we will be grooming the multi-use trails at Shady Rest for as long as weather and snow conditions allow with up to 2 ½ miles of expanded packed trails. Be sure to get out there early in the morning before the snow gets too soft!
The winter of 2016/2017 is shaping up to be an historic one, and the Mammoth Lakes Trail System team has been hard at work bringing several new programs on line for all winter recreation enthusiasts along with some old favorites that have just been waiting for a big winter like this one.
