“Very cool”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I go to Column of the Giants often when I'm going up for an overnight camp at Sonora Pass with family. It's a nice little hike and the slabs of rock are pretty cool. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

Note* If you've ever visited Devil's Postpile in Mammoth, it quite the same, just a bit smaller

“Good Day Hike”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Not far from the road. I think its accessible in the late spring,summer and fall. Check on winter. Make sure you bring a pack with snacks and plenty of water. The rock forms are neat to see.

“Worth a short stop”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Stop and give yourself a welcome break enjoying this sight.. Not worth a special trip, given how many stunning places are so close, but worth a stop if you are in the area. If you are relaxing, take a chair and settle down with a book and enjoy.
