Dig in to the treasures of Mammoth. Although the town’s root stemmed from mining, present-day Mammoth rewards visitors with its natural beauty and abundant recreational opportunities.
The Galiuro Mountains east of Mammoth provide the perfect setting for hiking, camping, off-roading, and exploring the remnants of old mining settlements. The nearby lower San Pedro River area is a birder’s paradise. Look for southwestern willow flycatchers, Gila woodpeckers, and American kestrels, among others.
For a short trip through several of Earth’s biomes, drive southwest of Mammoth to Biosphere 2. Built as a survival experiment, the 3.14-acre, glass-enclosed facility is now a large-scale research laboratory. Tours are offered daily.Visit City Site
