Most of the dog walks in West Mammoth Lakes are found in national forest land and designated trail systems throughout this little mountain town. While there are options for paved paths and gravel terrain, most of the trails you'll find out here are natural hikes in beautiful mountain wilderness. Your dog will love to explore the natural features of the high Sierras as much as you do.

Many of the trails you can take your dog on are in National Forest, so be prepared when you are headed out on hikes. Bring a map and know where you're going. Wear appropriate footwear and bring a day pack with plenty of water, snacks, and layers. Bring some extra for your dog too. It's also important to do a little research to determine where your dog can play off-leash and when you need to hook in. Following the rules will make sure that dogs are allowed on trails for many years.

If you are looking for a nice, short hike with stunning views and a beautiful lake to picnic at, Sherwin Lakes trail is your destination. From the trailhead, this path climbs for two miles up to a beautiful glacial bench where you can make your way around two beautiful lakes. Along the way, you'll get views of the Long Valley Caldera and the town of Mammoth Lakes! This beautiful trail is right along the popular John Muir through-hike and is a perfect example of the Eastern Sierra Landscape. 

If you're looking for a longer day out, head to the Duck Pass trailhead in the Inyo National Forest. This trail is steep with lots of climbing, but you'll be rewarded with stellar views and a multitude of lakes as you make your way up the Coldcreek watershed. Your dog will have plenty of opportunities to cool off in these lakes and you'll have time to take a rest before you climb up to the pass.
