Another wonderful way to view the magnificent vistas of Mammoth Lakes is horseback riding. There are local pack outfitters, that offer many rides with horses, an hour-long, half and full day long and week tours into the Ansel Adams and John Muir wilderness area.

A perfect ride for families is the 2-hour ride to Heart Lake in the Mammoth Lakes Basin, passing a mining camp and a historic gold mine. You can also have guided rides along Red’s Meadow, McGee Canyon, Convict Lake and Rock Creek.

If you want to have a far west experience, you can be a real cowboy on the horse during spring and fall seasons. You don’t need to have any experience; instructors will guide you through with ropes.
