Trail of the week

April 15, 2015

The Convict Lake trail south of Mammoth about five miles on U.S. 395 is free of snow and the aspens are budding right now, making the easy hike around the beautiful lake a good early season hike. If you want more of a challenge, head up the trail toward Mildred Lake at about 9,000 feet elevation. The trail is mostly free of snow, at least to the first creek crossing about 2.5 miles up. The trail behind the lake will give you a good workout and the views are impeccable.

Hike/Bike of the week

April 1, 2015

Lower Rock Creek trail is one of the best hikes/mountain bikes of the early spring season. The trail begins about a mile south of Toms Place and roughly parallels Lower Rock Creek Road for about eight miles to the community of Paradise, before the trail ends at the a parking area at an old resort. You can do several loop hikes since the trail crosses the road every few miles. The trail is considered to be one of the best mountain bike trails in the Eastern Sierra.

Length: 1-8 miles one way
Difficulty: Easy to moderately strenuous
