Trashy Thursdays

Whether you’re a lifelong visitor or a local, Mammoth Lakes and the beautiful mountains that surround it give everyone who visits something special. Help give something back by attending Trashy Thursdays if you’re in town early for Labor Day Weekend!

As great as the snow is in winter and spring, it prevents trash from being picked up for several months as it buries anything left on the ground. Trashy Thursdays was designed to pick up that trash throughout the summer, and as fall nears it’s more important than ever!

If you’re in town early for Labor Day weekend, stop by Trashy Thursdays to help clean up Mammoth Lakes! This Trashy Thursday will be taking place on September 1st at Shady Rest Park.

Hike All Over Mammoth Lakes

With fall on the horizon and winter coming behind it, there isn’t a better time to hike in Mammoth Lakes than Labor Day weekend. Whether you’re an experienced backpacker or only want a relaxing hike with a spectacular view, Mammoth Lakes is the place to be this holiday weekend.

If you come here to hike, you won’t be the only one so please remember to share the trails and pack out any trash you bring so that you Leave No Trace .

On top of that, remember to pace yourself while hiking. When you combine the heat and high elevation, even an easy hike can exhaust you if you’re not prepared. Drink plenty of water before and during your hike, take breaks from the sun, and stop hiking if you don’t feel well.

Lastly, don’t underestimate the amount of water you need for your hike. You can always share extra with those who are in need!
