Pet Friendly Attractions

Hot Creek Geologic Site

Considered a geologic wonder complete with hot springs, fumaroles, craters, and the ever-changing earth of the area, it is also a natural sanctuary for many kinds of birds and wildlife. Because of the high concentrations of chemicals in the water and the potential danger of scalding water, swimming is not recommended, and visitors must remain on walkways and boardwalks. There is a hatchery here, and long rearing ponds (called raceways) where visitors may view the fish. Dogs are allowed at the site, but are to be kept away from the water. Dogs must be on no more than a 6 foot leash, under their owner's control at all times, and be cleaned up after.

Devil's Postpile and Rainbow Falls

During the summer only, take a bus ride/shuttle to the Devil's Postpile National Monument with your pup. The shuttle is the only way to drive to this National Monument unless you have a camping permit or have a vehicle with 11 people or more. The shuttle begins at the Mammoth Mountain Inn off Hwy 203 and takes you and your dog on a scenic ride along the San Joaquin River to the National Monument. The travel time is about 45 minutes to Reds Meadow (past the Monument), but there are 10 stops along the way to get out and stretch or hike. Once at the Monument, there is a short 1/2 mile walk. The Monument is a series of basalt columns, 40 to 60 feet high, that resembles a giant pipe organ. It was made by hot lava that cooled and cracked 900,000 years ago. The John Muir Trail crosses the monument, so for a longer hike, join up with nearby trails that are in the dog-friendly Inyo National Forest. Dogs should be on a leash.

Mammoth Mountain Gondola

Want some awesome views of Mammoth Mountain and the surrounding areas? During the summer, you and your dog can hop on the Gondola (Cable Car) ride. You'll climb about 2,000 feet to the top of the mountain. Once there, you can enjoy a nice 1 1/2 - 2 hour hike down or take the Gondola back down the mountain. Dogs should be leashed.
