    This is a forest road between Bass Lake area and Central Camp and goes through Whiskers Campground. There are many trailheads along this road and there are a few cars going up and down hill to watch for

    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.

    I found this on All Trails app. which described it as a moderate hike 2.3 miles. We went in March, it was beautiful in the scenery. The trail was often very rutted and at times it was difficult to know if we were following a road or a trail, there were several tracks. I was very tired but happy to have finished this to the end.

    Beautiful in the spring when weather is cooler and wildflowers are in bloom. Trail is a bit rutted at the beginning from water runoff. Popular with hikers, runners and mountain bikers. Not too crowded on weekdays.

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

    Decent half-day hike. Right now everything is brown and dry, but the river is flowing. This hike is best in winter and spring, after a bit of rain has turned the landscape green again.

    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.
