Places To Visit

Updated on January 31, 2013


U.S. National Park Established in 1911 by Presidential Proclamation.

Did you know?

In winter Devil's Post Pile can be rough!

The mountain receives over 400 inches of snow each year because of it's location in The Sierra Nevada mountains. Great for back country skiers

There are many places in California you can visit for free like beautiful river streams coming down to the central valley from Yosemite National Park. Avocado Lake charges a small entry fee but an't much but a few dollars . It's great for family trips. The view is beautiful coming down the water rivers near this lake. Walking through here is dangerous rapid water can take you up stream. Just make it fun family day exploring the nature. Pretend you were the only ones out there it crazy how would you live? What would you eat? Make you think about the Indian days....

To get there by car take the California highway 395 south drive 10 Miles west on state route 203 to Minaret Vista and then another 8 miles on a paved steep mountain road this is a single lane for 3 miles. Most visitors must park at the Mammoth Mountain Ski area and use Mandatory shuttle bus that has been in service since 1980. Just 2 miles downstream from Devil's Post is Rainbow Falls impressive drops 101 feet down. It was once called "A Gem" unique worthy of it's name. It is named for the colorful rainbows that form in the mist. This is a great area to take family vacations. Nice area for camping near Middle Fork of The San Joaquin River. It's a 21 first come serve site and ADA accessible site. Hope you guys enjoyed this update.This is a rare place to find directions can get you lost. Most people think it';s located in Madera County. Black bears are also commonly seen in the area. They can be see anytime of the year.
