The Mammoth Lakes Trails & Public Access Foundation
MLTPA creates sustainable trail and recreation systems that support prosperous economies and healthy communities in Mammoth Lakes, the Eastern Sierra, and beyond. Our origin story lies in the effective resolution of a controversy over the public's access to the federal public lands that surround the community of Mammoth Lakes and define its culture.
We play a key roll in local trail system planning and implementation and have secured reliable funding for a variety of sustainable recreation initiatives that benefit our community. We now work across federal, state and local jurisdictions to secure public access and to build sustainable recreation systems to ensure that human experiences in the natural world remain inspiring for generations to come.

“Overall, the Sustainable Recreation / CALREC Vision Key Working Group was one of the most well-managed, efficient, and most importantly, inclusive efforts I’ve been a part of, especially for the pace at which it was conducted.”
