Ascent Trip Report

Fantastic hike from Tamarack Lodge to Mammoth Mountain. The gondola and Summit House were shut down for the season. That meant there were no mountain bikers and I had the whole mountain to myself. Gusty winds along the upper summit ridge dropped the wind chill below freezing requiring layering up. Here’s the trail start in Twin Lakes CG. Note that their is no parking in the Campground itself. 37.615838,-119.011177
