Project Description:  On June 1st, National Trails Day, meet the Mammoth Lakes Trail System Crew in the Convict Lake parking lot 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 expert trail crew leaders, we'll dig in and get to work. Thanks to the great generosity of Volunteer Eastern Sierra, the day will wind down 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.

Be sure to dress for trail work. Closed-toe shoes and long pants required; walk, bike ride or carpool if you can. OR bring your boat or paddle board to help cleanup the lake. Visit mltpa.org or call (760) 914-1769 to speak with me, Joel Rathje, the Mammoth Lakes Trail System Trails Coordinator for details. 

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!
