Description

Devils Postpile is an amazing rock formation worth visiting for people of any age or skill. You can view this intriguing rock formation via a very short trail which runs along its base, or you can take a short but steeper trail up to the top of the Postpile.

Short Walk: Accessed via a short trail from the road. During the summer, you may be required to take the shuttle from Mammoth Mountain.

Family Friendly: It is located very close to the road with nice short trails around it.
