2. Visit Devil's Postpile National Monument

Basalt rock is an igneous rock unique to parts of the world with hot spots deep in the ground. Thanks to hot springs in this area you will find one of the most interesting basalt rock formations in the country - Devil's Postpile - which is truly a sight to behold.

Occurring randomly in nature and truly fascinating to view, Devil's Postpile is protected as a National Monument. It is located within the Ansel Adams Wilderness area (aka Inyo National Forest). There are many other wonders to be viewed and explored while here, such as Minaret Falls.

3. Enjoy the cool mountain waters, warm-up in a hot spring!

After your invigorating time in one of our beautiful lakes, you can warm your soul at a local hot spring.

There are many hot springs around this mountain lake region, however not all are open to visitors who want to take a dip. However, you are in luck! Wild Willy's Hot Spring is natural, "off the beaten path", and ready to warm you as you take in the mountain air. If you don't mind a drive down a dirt road to get there, you'll never forget this experience. Wild Willy's has two hot spring pools and also offers camping areas if you should want to spend a night out under the stars.

4. Hike for Spectacular Views and Rainbow Falls!

Go for a hike anywhere around Mammoth Lakes and you will blow away your Instagram followers. So many lakes, so many mountains and too many trails to even mention here!

Some popular trails include Crystal Lake Trail which is only 2.5 miles of moderate, dog-friendly hiking path, and the Mammoth Crest Trail which ranges from 4.4 to the 13.2 mile loop. Both trails offer a mountainous journey full of spectacular lake views. Mammoth offers you options to suit your adventure level.

Just a few miles from the Devil's Postpile is Rainbow Falls. Water from the San Joaquin River drops over 100 feet to the river below, creating the roar, mist and rainbows you will want to see in person. Check here for information on the short hike to the falls and shuttle services available.

5. Play Golf at the "Highest Golf Course in California"

The lowest hole you'll play at Sierra Star Golf Club is above 7,800 feet! You are playing golf in the mountains, and the views all around won't let you forget it.
