Going the Distance and Keeping the Pace
If you have the time and lung capacity, I recommend running Mammoth Rock the roundabout way.
From the meadow fronting our condo at Snowcreek, you go left to the bike path and up a few paved switchbacks past the Juniper Meadows condos. With the acid already pooling in the back of your mouth, you arrive at the base of the Eagle chairlift on the back side of Mammoth Mountain. From there, an attack up a narrow face lined with $2-million homes takes you to the other side of Lake Mary Road.
