Paper Route is the main two-way singletrack trail traversing the flanks of Mammoth Mountain on the Juniper Springs Resort side.
While many riders utilize this singletrack trail for pedal-driven trail riding, it does provide a useful connection for downhill riders trying to move across the resort.
This flowy intermediate trail is smooth and mellow.
While punctuated by roots and the occasional rock, Paper Route is definitely one of the easiest trails on the mountain.
Overall, it rides like a classic backcountry singletrack, without much in the way of bike-optimized trail features.
While you can expect classic, loose Mammoth Mountain soil, some sections of the trail runs through deep pine groves with delicious sections of dark, loamy soil—a true treat in the Mammoth Lakes region!
