Description:

The Hemlocks are a region of terrain at Mammoth Mountain accessible only by a hike from the top of Chair 14. It is rated as a double black diamond due to the steepness of the terrain. It is also a remote area of the mountain requiring a number of lifts and traverses to get there. This also means that the Hemlocks are the last area of the mountain to preserve fresh tracks.
