I stopped here in January for some information I was looking for; they were very nice and provided what i wanted. It is on your way into the Mammoth town area.

Based on previous reviews I was not prepared for the strenuousness of this hike. It was do-able, but not too easy. It took about 1 hour + to climb up the ridge, and 40 minutes down. It was woth it with outstanding views from the top, and Crystal Lake was beautiful and peaceful.

This is a pretty nice visitor center with an information desk with several folks available to answer questions. Maps...some free, some not...along with numerous brochures and some gift and apparel items are available as well. Adequate parking area as you enter Mammoth for this center.

This is the place to go to get all the information needed to make the most of Mammoth area "things to do". The people working there really know their stuff.

We dropped in here just for the heck of it and were surprised at how smart and knowledgeable and enthusiastic and nice the rangers were. Tons of great ideas to match the current weather conditions, realistic forecasts, what wildlife to try to see, trail conditions, all right on the money. A bunch of great folks, anxious to try to make... More

Very easy to find. Staff were knowledgeable about the area and more than willing to help us plan our visit. The gift store carried a decent supply of "stuff". We actually made two visits - 1 at the beginning and 1 at the end of our day.

Before leaving the area, we stopped in again to get directions to Death Valley. Center had many books about nature, hiking, and environmental concerns. Also sold T-shirts, post... More
