Series Sponsors: Old New York Deli and Bagel CompanyMammoth Brewing Companyand Mammoth Lakes Sunrise Rotary

Project Description: We've said it twice, so we'll say it three times - Mountain Biking Really Matters! Summer of Stewardship Trail Days 2013 puts our stewardship where our mouth is on Saturday July 20, 2013 bringing some long overdue trail maintenance to the classic Mountain View Trail. Volunteers will take on as much of the Mountain View Trail as we can handle in a single day, hoping to connect all of the great work that happened at the July 6 event at Earthquake Fault and theUptown/Downtown trail. Volunteers will learn trail maintenance skills from Friends of the Inyo staff, and those interested in being regular members of the Mammoth Lakes Trail System volunteer trail crew should come on Saturday, July 20 to get trained up for future SOS projects.

  • When: Saturday, July 20, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Where: Meet at the top of the Mountain View Trail by the Minaret Vista for a free bagel breakfast, safety talk and work assignments. Free lunch and lots of giveaways will be hosted on site.
  • What: Join the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation and Mammoth Outdoor Sports for the long overdue Mountain View Trail Maintenance Day.
  • Who: Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome! Please dress for trail work: sturdy, close-toed shoes, hat, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt. Gloves and tools provided.
