Trail Overview
Deadman Pass
If you are looking for outstanding views of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the Minarets, this is a short but great ride. Green-sticker vehicles are allowed on the road, but may not leave the main road. This area is popular for hikers, so please be courteous. Consider parking the vehicles for awhile to explore the Minaret Vista Picnic Area, Devils Postpile, Minaret Summit, Twin Lakes, Twin Falls and Lake Mary. There are many options for camping in the Inyo National Forest.
Getting There
Take Highway 203 west into Mammoth Lakes from Highway 395. About 1.3 miles after the wellmarked visitor center, follow 203 right uphill towards Mammoth Ski Area. Continue west about 5 more miles. Turn right on a paved road just before Minaret Vista Entry Station. Go north 200 feet to dirt road on right just after a dirt pullover area.
