Location

Sierra Meadows Ranch rises from the rugged terrain off the bend on Old Mammoth Road in the town of Mammoth Lakes, California. The ranch is nestled between Mammoth Creek along its northern and eastern edges and the wide-open terrain leading to the to the base of the towering Sherwin mountains to the south. Facing west, there is an unobstructed view of the entirety of Mammoth Mountain. The ranch is ideally situated in the Sherwin Recreation Area for those wanting to explore the nearby equestrian, walking, hiking and biking trails; Sherwin Lakes Trail, Valentine Lake Trail, Mammoth Rock Trail and Town Loop.

Mammoth Creek Loop (1.1 miles)

This historic trail from Sherwins Meadow to the old mines at the edge of the Lakes Basin provides grand views across the town and can be traveled in either direction up or down. From a staging area off Sherwin Creek Road, the narrow single track climbs gently, cutting spectacularly along the steep contour of the Sherwin Range, above Snowcreek Meadow, crossing beneath the prominent outcropping of limestone and marble known as Mammoth Rock and ending at its junction with upper Old Mammoth Road. The trail is best traveled before the heat of the day or in the late afternoon; yield carefully to other users (Mammoth Lakes Trail System).

Sherwin Lakes Trail (5.1 miles)

With its relatively lower-elevation trailhead in the aspen groves and old-growth Jeffrey pines off Sherwin Creek Road near the motocross track, this trail is an excellent option in the spring and early summer, when the lakes are full and clear and the wildflowers are blooming. In just three miles, the trail climbs steeply in a series of switchbacks to a small plateau and a pair of small lakes beneath the high peaks of the Sherwin Range, affording wide vistas back across the town of Mammoth Lakes and the Long Valley Caldera.

Valentine Lakes Trail (9.1 miles)

From its trailhead off Sherwin Creek Road, just east of the Sherwin Creek Campground, the Valentine Lake Trail climbs steeply from sagebrush chaparral through open, old-growth Jeffrey pine forest to a bench at the base of the Sherwin Range and a junction with the Sherwin Lakes Trail. The trail then follows the creek into the John Muir Wilderness. Return the way, you came or make a loop by way of Sherwin Lakes. You can enjoy the expansive views back across the Mammoth Creek drainage and the Long Valley Caldera.

Town Loop

The main hub of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System, the Town Loop - made up of a multi-use path, on-street sections, promenades, and bridges - provides a family-friendly tour of the town with access to a variety of outbound trails and staging areas. Mammoth Creek Park is a popular start point from which you can tour the eastern half of Mammoth - offering sweeping views of the Sherwins and connections to local schools, the library and dining / shopping - or the western portion, which cruises sleepily through Old Mammoth and past the Valentine Reserve to Eagle Lodge before turning into a quiet neighborhood on its way back out to the Main Street frontage road.
