We went to the Mammoth Lakes area just to visit this National Monument. It was a lovely walk, and not difficult. The drive to the monument is really beautiful, but make sure you head out early. Parking is very limted at the trailhead, and I believe the park service closes the road once the parking is full. Parts of the road are very narrow, with turnouts to allow cars to go by. It traffic gets too heavy, it could cause major issues. We arrived while there was still parking, so no problem for us. But on our drive out, it was non-stop cars coming in. The postpile itself is really interesting. We did not take the trail to the top, but just walking along the bottom is cool. The short hike in is also quite scenic, offering views of the river. Really lovely.

Enjoyed the visit to this iconic Mammoth area natural attraction. The walk is relatively easy and flat.

We did the Devil's Postpile and Rainbow falls hike (6ish miles round-trip). We got to the parking lot at 7 and started off on the hike. The scenery is nice and social distancing wasn't a problem.

Interesting basalt formation. Maybe more interesting if your read something about their origin on the available panels. We had to wear our baby in the carrier to get there. The trail from the parking lot is short but not paved and with some steps, so not good for strollers/wheelchairs. You also have to pay 10$ per car to access the parking lot, which gets pretty full so you end up parking somewhere among the trees.. be ready to wash your car afterwards to get rid of all the dust
