Shady Rest Inyo Craters Trail Planning

In 2019, the Town of Mammoth Lakes was awarded a 3-year planning grant for Shady Rest Inyo Craters (SRIC) by CA State Parks OHMVR Division. Mammoth Lakes Recreation and partners want to know what you think about outdoor recreation in the Shady Rest Inyo Craters region.  Your feedback will help us determine what is most important to you as we move through the planning process.

 

The survey should only take about 5-8 minutes to complete. Your identity and all personal information will be kept confidential. The information you give us will never be associated with your name.

 

For the purposes of this survey, please consider outdoor recreation as activities that can be accessed by or done in the Shady Rest Inyo Craters recreational trail planning project area which is defined in the interactive map above.
