    Nice easy hike in Mammoth area. Small parking area good for a few cars only. Not recommended for big vans or trucks. The beginning of the hike starts ascending right away and has some small rocks. Nothing too bad, but definitely wear some shoes that protect the toes (no sandals). Once you get to the top and you make your way to the center of the dome, it feels like you may be on some distant planet. It's worth the uphill trek. Views on a clear day are awesome. However if it is a hot day and you do the hike in the middle of the day, it may feel like the ground is reflecting the heat of the sun on to you so don't forget to have plenty of water. Enjoy and watch your stop on the rocky section.
