Here are the image’s we got from the Upper Section of the Bullet Downhill Trail on Mammoth Mountain. http://discovermammoth.com/image-galleries/Bullet-Trail-Mammoth-Mountain-Bike-Park/ This is the video we cut from the Rock Garden Section. We are working on a top to bottom edit and will post it on Tuesday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVjZ9P1Mb0g
Crystal Lake lies just beneath the Mammoth Crest and Crystal Crag in the Mammoth Lakes Basin at 9600 feet.
This awesome high mountain lake trail is a great place for a 3-4 hour session of Hiking & Exploring, add in Lunch and Fishing and you can make this a day trip.
The best part about Crystal Lake is it’s well away from the main Mammoth Lakes Basin Traffic and Summer crowds.
This hike takes about 30 – 60 minuets to reach Crystal Lake. You should consider this trail to be moderate in difficulty. You will be gaining about 900 vertical in rise over a 1.75 mile hike in.
This hike feels longer and steeper because of the very high elevation peaking just before you reach the lake at 9,607 feet. There are lot’s of vista point’s to stop at and rest while on your way up.
The view from some of those vista points stunning to say the least. The photo below is looking down on Lake George, Lake Mary and the Sherwin range.

Here some more shots that Snowman got from around the Mammoth Lakes area over the last 8 days. Enjoy
The Hike to Tj and Barret Lakes lies just beneath the Mammoth Crest and Crystal Crag in the Mammoth Lakes Basin at 9,293 feet.
This high mountain hiking trail is a great place for a 3-4 hour session of hiking & exploring, add in lunch on the shore line and some fishing and you can make this a day trip.
This hike takes about 30 – 60 minuets to reach Barret Lake depending on what type of shape you are in. Then it is a easy 10 minutes on to TJ Lake. You should consider this trail to be moderate in difficulty.
You will be gaining about 290 vertical in rise over the first .75 mile’s of the hike in or should we say up to Lake Barret. I have read many online reviews and post’s about this section. For many people this is a challenge, our take is you need to be in basic shape and take it easy.
