What is your best advice for people visiting Mammoth Lakes and the surrounding Eastern Sierra for the First time?
Stop by the Visitor Center entering town, get a map. Don’t rush, drink water. Walk through the parks to get acclimated. Then start discovering new adventures on trails to lakes and mountain vistas.
