MLTPA was initiated in 2005 by local residents in response to concerns about skier/snowboarder egress from the Sherwin Range, homeowner harassment, and a private gate being built on a public road. In 2012, Mammoth Lakes celebrated the Grand Opening of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System.


From its inception, MLTPA has advocated for policies and funding measures that improve the public's access to sustainable outdoor recreation. These efforts were especially active in the early 2000's when a number of real estate development projects were seeking entitlements in Mammoth Lakes.
