A great hike

Mammoth adventure:
Just yonder of Yosemite, Mammoth Lakes is a town that delivers on 100-mile panoramas, shark-tooth peaks, powerhouse hiking trails and countless turquoise lakes. We recommend hiking to Gem Lake, set at 9,100 feet in the Ansel Adams Wilderness area. This vast oasis is reached via an incredibly scenic, one-way 3.4-mile hike.
