I actually did this trail up to Barney Lake.
The trail is easy to follow and has most of the elevation gain in the beginning. The views are spectacular. I did an offshoot trail just after arrowhead lake that lead to a lookout of the Mammoth Crest and had some great views towards the town. Highly recommended trail.
The only downside to this trail was I was eaten alive by the mosquitos. Mammoth has had a lot of rain this summer and thus has had higher than normal populations of mosquitos. I however didn't have repellent so I was eaten alive.
