This is a must... it's a little off the beaten track but not that far. The hike between the Postpile and the waterfall is interesting as you look out at the terrain scarred by fire. The waterfall is beautiful, especially going down to the lower level and looking up at the falls. Just make sure you carry drinking water with you.

The weather was perfect and the views were incredible, it was a nice day to hike. The walk to Rainbow falls was easy for the whole family.

On my first visit to Mammoth Lakes (May this year), the monument was still closed.
Therefore I didn't miss the opportunity to visit Devil's Postpile on my second visit to Mammoth Lakes.
I didn' regret my decision. Rainbow Falls and the nice hike to Devil's Postpile is very scenic and also pretty remote (we had to go there by shuttle bus, but we were almost alone).
A must see, when you're in the area!!

This is a great, short easy hike. The geology of the post pile is something to be seen and Rainbow falls further down is always impressive. The Town of Mammoth Lakes makes getting to the trail head easy and free. Like all the public transportation in Mammoth Lakes, the buses, shuttles, and trolleys are free and are dog friendly.

The short hike into Devil's Post Pile is well worth it. And, if you have the time, be sure to continue the hike to the top of the post pile where the stone resembles a hexagonal tiled floor.
