Alt Names

Mammoth Mountain Motocross, Mammoth MX, Inyo National Forest

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Established in 1968, this historical track is only open once per year in June for the Mammoth Motocross racing event. The track is about one mile long and has a natural terrain layout with steep hills, off camber turns and 60’ to 80’ foot tabletops. The track mostly consists of loamy soil with some decomposed granite and sand.

The track is only open for riding during the annual motocross event. For those interested in riding the track you must purchase a class to race. Practice passes are limited and are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Overnight parking is not permitted but there are plenty of campgrounds and lodging facilities nearby. Reservations are suggested since the event is very popular. See the track website or call for specifics.
