Beautiful!
Sep 2021
BEAUTIFUL -- Went at sunset and it was a beautiful site -- all 360 degrees! Also I was just feet away from a buck munching on the grasses! Easy to get there, and VERY enjoyable way to end your day!

Not too impressed
Jul 2020 • Family
Ok spot to stop by if you are anyway in the area (e.g. is just a couple of miles from the devil’s Postpile). You get to view the valley and mountains/minaret but I don’t think it is a “must” do thing, at least in summer. Maybe it gets more impressive when there is a lot of snow on the mountains??

Incredible views
Jun 2020
Incredible views, we drove up twice once in the middle of the day and we come back early the next day to see the sun rise. It's a must see location.

Come for the 6:30 am sunrise
Jul 2020
Stunning and easy to get to. We recommend coming early to get a parking spot at the top. Great place for pics and just watching the sunrise and set.

First time visit, and very impressed
Jun 2020
Was told by a friend to go up to the vista, and it was well worth it. I live on the Western side of the Sierras and the views here were very spectacular. You can see down to Devils Postpile, Mount Adler (highest point in Yosemite NP), and off to the southwest and the headwaters of the San Joaquin River. Take your camera and your binoculars. It'll be worth it.

It does look like minarets
Nov 2019
We watched this mountain from another mountain top that had a vista point. This spot also has a good view of the sunset when the sun goes behind the minarets. The sky had a beautiful color. Don't forget your camera.

Beautiful

Such a great panoramic view. Be sure to stop and look on your way to Devil's Postpile National Monument and Rainbow Falls.

Exceptional overlook
Oct 2019
This is an easy get to overlook and just minutes from Mammoth Lakes. It's best in the morning light but evening are still good. The draw back in the evening is the mountain peaks will be back lite

Sunset unseen!
Oct 2019
Just a short drive beyond the ski lifts the views of the valley go on and on for miles. We saw 3 bucks and deer saunter through the vegetation while we viewed the landscape. Worth the few minutes.

Beautiful sight
Oct 2019
Worth the twisty drive on the mountains edge. Snow was on a few of the peaks. Everywhere you go in Mammoth Lakes is scenic and beautiful. However, roads are not well marked and locals drive fast. We had no service at this spot. Good thing we printed directions at home.
