The Panorama Dome Mountain Bike Trail (not to be confused by the hiking trail with the same name PLEASE dont ride bikes on the hiking trail) is a great beginner to intermediate ride, and even advanced/expert riders like the fast and flowy vibe it offers. Its not too technical and is mostly buff singletrack.
Most of it is tucked in the trees, keeping you cool on hot summer days. Views of the backside of Mammoth Mountain, Twin Lakes, and the Mammoth Crest are gorgeous. Much of the trail was destroyed by logging vehicles in 2011-2012, but was revamped in 2013 as part of a large trail project in conjunction with MLTPA, Friends of the Inyo, the USFS, etc Fat Bike Mammoth was proud to be a co-sponsor of the event as well read about it here.
Anyhoo, now its riding better than ever. The trail is easy to access and lies right between the Lakes Trail
(part of Mammoth Mountain Bike Park) and Mammoth Rock Trail
. Many people incorporate it with those rides. Its also right off the Town Bike Path, so many people combine it with the Horseshoe Lake Trail
a little farther up the road.
