"A delightful day hike leaving right from Mammoth. If you stay at Mammoth and have some extra time to get away from the traffic-choked roads, this gentle 5.2-mile loop trail is a great option. There is an excellent chance of seeing elk (if you haven’t already seen enough right in Mammoth), moose, and both black and grizzly bears. The trail begins just to the right (north) of Clematis Creek before Liberty Cap. After about a hundred yards it crosses Clematis Creek on a bridge and starts gradually climbing uphill, with brilliant colors of Mammoth Hot Springs on the left (south). At 0.2 mile you reach the junction with the Golden Gate/Howard Eaton Trail, which takes you behind the hot springs and to Terrace Mountain." Read more
