Project Description:  On August 3rd meet the Mammoth Lakes Trail System Crew at the Coldwater Trailheads at 8:30 a.m. for a delicious free bagel breakfast provided by Old New York Deli and Bagel. After a safety talk and assignments from our trail crew leaders, we'll dig in and get to work on trailhead maintenance, trail work and general clean up. Thanks to the generosity of Volunteer Eastern Sierra, the work day will end with a gourmet lunch from Bleu Handcrafted Foods, followed by a raffle and lots of great giveaways!

This year, Trail Days is going green! So please bring your own plates and silverware to prevent the need for single use products.

All ages and abilities are welcome, as are families and clubs! Please arrive dressed for trail work (long pants, sun protection, sturdy close-toed shoes and gloves), and don’t worry if you can’t make it quite at 8:30; we can check you in and send you off to a task in progress just about anytime before 10:30 a.m. Trail Days are made possible by the Town of Mammoth LakesInyo National ForestMammoth Lakes Recreation, and Mammoth’s own Measure R! Special thanks to KMMT Radio for airtime to spread the word! 

And if you want more opportunities to get involved with our great Trail System keep an eye out for upcoming Mammoth Trails meetings where you can share your thoughts and give input to help guide the future of the MLTS! Visit or call (760) 914-1769 for any further details.
