    Mammoth Lakes

    For a remote retreat in stunning surroundings, head to the beautiful town of Mammoth Lakes. In the shadow of the mighty Mammoth Mountain, this town makes the perfect jumping off point for exploring the Ansel Adams Wilderness area with its intriguing rock formations. Explore the great outdoors by bike, on foot or delve into the region’s gold rush heritage at nearby Bodie Ghost Town. During the warmer months Yosemite National Park is only a 45 minute drive away (2 hours to the valley floor), via the scenic Tioga Pass, making it an ideal day trip.
