Mammoth Lakes Trail System Reference Documents


Project description: As directed by Resolution R12-940-10, adopted by Town Council on February 1, 2012, the Town of Mammoth Lakes desires to "...establish and formalize a high level of interagency cooperation with the USDA Inyo National Forest to plan, design, implement, construct, operate, maintain, and promote an integrated year-round trail system to be known as the Mammoth Lakes Trail System." The Town Manager and Recreation Commission will now institute the Mammoth Lakes Trail System Coordinating Committee (MLTS CC) and present the Town of Mammoth Lakes Trail System Master Plan to the Inyo National Forest as the Town's adopted policy document to guide future development of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System (MLTS).

More information regarding the formation and activities of the MLTS CC will be posted here as it becomes available; in the meantime, please refer to the documents and links below for a more detailed understanding of the road leading to this important partnership and of the many projects the MLTS CC will consider.
