The locals say that there is nearly one dog per person in Mammoth Lakes. Whether or not that’s true no one really knows, but the town and surrounding area is, in fact, a dog paradise. Horseshoe Lake is the unofficial "dog beach" and the most popular spot for taking Jack Dog on a walk.
The sandy shore and a two-mile trail that circles the lake combine to make Horseshoe Lake an ideal destination for four-legged visitors. The lake is also popular among runners and mountain bikers.
Located at the end of Lake Mary Road in the Mammoth Lakes Basin, Horseshoe Lake can be accessed by car, foot, bike, or trolley. Local etiquette: good dogs are allowed off-leash. Please pick up after your pet.
