Devils Postpile/Rainbow Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Devils Postpile and Rainbow Falls, both beautiful destinations, are popular draws in the town of Mammoth Lakes. The Devils Postpile is a fascinating piece of geology. The columnar basalt that erupts wickedly from the earth formed during a cooling lava flow. Glacial ice uncovered the formation as it now stands for posterity."

Had a great hike. The crowd wasn't too bad. Caught a Golden Trout just below lower rainbow falls. The views of the falls and the Devils Postpile were excelent. Took my wife Daughter, 13 years old and her frined. Nice fun day hike.
