The scenic loop is being reconstructed this summer and fall to improve drainage and to also add an 11 foot wide travel lanes and a 5 foot wide bike lane.
This will make it safer for cars and people that want to sled, snowshoe, snowmobile or bike.There will be more room for all.
Mammoth Rental by Owner.com has come to find that the Town of Mammoth Lakes has been working with the USFS and the FHA to reconstruct the Mammoth Scenic Loop since 2002.

So for great eats check out our story.
Our family was in Mammoth a month ago for our annual summer vacation. What a great place. I wanted to share a surprise we came upon by accident. On our way back from Tioga Pass, where we had been hiking all day with the kids (at the junction of Tioga Pass and HWY395 just before Lee Vining) we pulled into to the Mobile Gas station for some gas and the kids were hunger and wanted a snack. Much to our surprise we came upon a fabulouse restaurant in the Mobile Mart Gas Station. The menu was extensive, the food was GREAT and the atmosphere was casual and very comfortable. There was indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outside and enjoyed the view and the kids got to run around on the grass. This is NOT your typical gas station, in fact it is far from it. Anyway, the place was packed obviously everyone else knew about this fantastic restaurant in the Mobile Mart . We also found out that they have live music on certain nights and as we had 4 days left of our vacation we decided to make the drive from Mammoth back to the Mobile Mart for diner the next night as the band would be playing. Well, it was worth the 30min drive from Mammoth to have great food (we think it is the best in Mammoth) , entertainment, a view and lots of room for the kids to run and play while my husband and I enjoyed a beautiful evening, wonderful food and great music. I'm getting ready to fix dinner at home and it reminded me of the wonderful experience we had at a gas station, the Mobile Mart Gas Station, and how I wished I could be there right now. I never would have guessed I'd be writing about a wonderful dining experience at a gas station, go figure. I guess small wonders never cease. If you go you will not be disappointed :)
