    Nice little hike for kids. Beware that there’s a playground just north of the marina. Plan for some play timed you bring kids.

    First backpacking trip. Did it solo with all the newbie mistakes and paranoia. Made it to Duck Lake and it was a tough climb up the pass. Ended up feeling the altitude and couldn’t eat and turned back. Hiked all the way back to the car, beat. Rented a hotel for the night and enjoyed a hot epsom bath and dominos pizza. Felt like a failure until I reflected on how much I actually learned. Next trip was much easier, efficient and amazing. Go hike Duck Lake!

    Did a great overnight on this trail up at Young Lake. Watch out for mosquitos in July though. Scrambling up ragged peak is fun too!

    I wrote the description above. It gets 4 stars because it's just a great trip that I've done twice. It loses 1 star only because you have to use the shuttle system at Mammoth and because of the distance. I don't know why the track shows what it does. Here's mine: https://www.gaiagps.com/public/6UaTRoudg7dkPL7mOkkOYSZF . Do note that I recorded this route leaving, so it goes from Iva Bell to the trailhead. Distance is 12ish miles with about 2,000 ft gain/loss on the round trip.

    Nice shaded hike with well maintained switchbacks up to Sherwin Lakes. Lower elevation, good for early season hiking. Some views of Lincoln and white mountains.

    It is an easy beautiful hike with amazing views to the mountains and the lakes. We finished eating in the June Brewing and it was amazing!

    Dog friendly and easy class 1 trail. It seems that at each switchback the views to the north got better.

    We made this as a first leg of a backpacking trip to the Iva Bell hotsprings. From the Rainbow Falls trailhead all the way down to the valley floor. As soon as the final descent brings down to the Fish Creek, there is a lot of flat relatively open space that works great for making camp. From that location, another 4 miles along the Fish Creek Trail will bring to the hot springs area. The pools take some time to find them, there are use trails that run in the general direction of the pools. Moving up the slope one gets from one pool to the next but not necessarily in a straight line. The pools are warm; some are cleaner than others; they also vary by the quality of the bottom material. It is heavenly to soak in the warm relaxing water and gaze into the vast valley under the deep blue sky. The official trails are well marked and cross many streams. On a sunny dry day in late September, the trail was quite dusty to trod.The Iva Bell hotsprings area seems to be popular - there were at least 3 camping parties and more passing through.
