MAMMOTH FALL COLORS BUS TRIP
October 5-7

We will take a chartered bus to Mammoth to enjoy the Fall Color. Our leaders are putting together an interesting variety of outings. Mammoth offers an abundance of hiking opportunities, nature trails and amenities such as shuttle service, markets, shops, galleries, restaurants and breweries. Each day the bus will drive to the areas with the best color and you will have an option to go on a walk or a hike with Sierra Club leaders who will talk about the geology and biology of the area. You will have the option of a slow, easier hike (about 3-5 miles maximum) or a longer, more moderately-paced hike. Or you can stay behind in Mammoth Lakes and plan your own day.

The price includes bus transportation and two-nights lodging in shared condos in Mammoth Lakes. Condos have two bedrooms, each with a king or queen bed, a loft with four single beds, kitchen and two or three baths. The condos are located near a shopping center and near the shuttle stop. No meals are provided.
