Well marked trail with walkways and plenty of stairs. Approximately 1 mile total - this trail takes you around a large sinkhole with displays along the trail.

Not a lot to see on this trail. It's pretty, but just not a lot of scenic views.. Just a lot of the same views you get from the other trails in the park

The nature trail is well made, takes you through tall forested areas, down, and back up, many stairs. The destination is a very large Sinkhole, maybe 100 yards by 50 yards, but irregular in shape and heavily treed for the most part. You see a river emerge from under some cliffs, then drop back underground. This is away from the... More

There are dozens of hikes at Mammoth, but we only did the Cedar Sink Trail hike. It’s a nice hike, easy for kids to do, and has some good variety near the end. It was a pretty hike. We were out and back in about an hour. Since we did it early in the day, it wasn’t packed with people.... More

This hike doesn't take too long and there is plenty of shade on a sunny day. There are some stairs to descend which would tire out some folks who are not in great shape or who have bad knees. But the views are nice and the trails are well marked and not crowded at all.

Fascinating topography. Saw some hawks. About 1.6 miles round trip with some nice elevation changes in and out of the sinkhole.

Although it was a 3/4 miles ramble to the sink, the kids in our group (from 6 months old to 11 years) did very well. The boys in the group loved the sink area, climbing on the rocks and trying to throw things into the water. We visited in winter and only saw one other group come through in the... More

I read good reviews on Trip Advisor for this trail and decided to check it out. Its a beautiful trail and leads to some canyon like formations at the end of the trail. If you go when its hot, there is plenty of shade most of the way, so it is a very pleasant hike. There are sink holes along... More

This 45 min loop hike was a good way to see some top-side attractions at the park. Great trail conditions with stairs built to descend into and out of the sink hole. Good to do between cave tours. It's a 10-15 min drive from the visitor center. Saw deer and turkeys in route. Wild flowers added to the beauty of... More
