Please Leash Your Dog!

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is issuing citations to all owners with dogs off-leash at Shady Rest Park and throughout Town after issuing only warnings for the last 2 years. It is unlawful for any dog owner to allow their dog to run at large within the Town of Mammoth Lakes Municipal Boundary. The Eastern Sierra offers an incredible outdoor playground for dog owners to play and walk with your dog(s) off-leash. The Town is moving forward with plans for a dog park with construction expected to commence in the fall of 2023. Thank you for your commitment in keeping Mammoth Lakes safe and beautiful for all to enjoy! Learn more about Dog Resources, Licensing, Education and Enforcement.

In the Town of Mammoth Lakes, beyond the Shady Rest “slow zone” around the softball fields, geothermal pipelines that run above ground are now marked with yellow/black/red bamboo poles about 20 feet apart. Please use caution riding in this area by slowing down and staying on the groomed trail when you are within a quarter mile of the parking lot. Please do not ride your snowmobile over these pipelines. This is a temporary solution while we work to install more appropriate signage and highly visible markings. Thank you for being safe on your snowmobile! Need a map? Download it on our snowmobiling page either in PDF or georeferenced on Avenza for free.
