Agnew Meadows via Shadow Creek Trail
This is a difficult one way trail in Inyo National Forest.
To access the trail head, use the Devil's Post Pile road near Mammoth Mountain. The road is closed in October for the winter and the road opening in summer will vary due to snow pack or road conditions. A shuttle will be necessary to enter the Devil's Post Pile National Monument. Fee is required to enter monument area. Visit nps.gov for more information on fees and shuttle.
This is a tough hike for children under 10, not recommended unless your child is used to hiking trails like this. I rate this a 2 for children.
