The drive to Mammoth offers a spectacular tour of the Eastern Sierra. From the moment you hit the highway, you travel through one of the most beautiful portions of California. Valleys give way to mountains and energy builds until Mammoth Mountain looms in the distance. Access Mammoth from all directions via the scenic north-to-south Hwy 395, running along the eastern edge of California's Sierra Nevada Range.
