    Christopher Naoum reviewed Lake Solitude Trail

    12 months ago

    Amazing hike. Not heavily trafficked once you pass inspiration point. Saw moose, bear, marmots and more. Spectacular views everywhere. Also after the first 2 miles there is just a steady incline. About 1.5 miles after the split the trail disappears into snow. On June 27th it was incredibly difficult to navigate without proper gear to stabilize footing. We did not make it to the Lake we turned back about a mile short according to GPS. We were told by another couple that the Lake was completely frozen over however.

    Great trail to do early in the morning. It has some good elevation and spectacular views. The later in the day the more crowded the trail gets.

    This was a great trail at the beginning but the end of the loop is closed due to construction and we had to finish with one mile on the road.

    Very crowded trail but one of my favorite geothermal areas. This can also be extended with a Falls hike that is a little less trafficked.

    We left one car at Mammoth visitors center and drove the other to the trailhead. This was a great trail with amazing views. It dips down by the Uline Falls close to the top and then you essentially walk downhill all the way to the Gardener river where you cross on an extension bridge. This is where most would turn back but if you are going one way only, note that you need to walk around the construction area and through the Mammoth Campground.

    Christopher Naoum reviewed Canyon Rim North Trail to Inspiration Point

    So many portions of this trail are closed for construction and the portions that are not are swarmed with people. There is also no reason to do this trail over the lower rim. The lower rim also has some semblance of a trail while the north rim is all on boardwalks and built up along the road.

    Christopher Naoum reviewed Upper Falls, Lower Falls and Crystal Falls Trail

    We started this trail at the Wasili Lake trailhead and took the Clear Lake Branch. We took the trail past Clear Lake through an awesome Geo Thermal area and then connected with the lower rim trail. We then continued to Point Sublime and then turned back to Artist Point. The trail along the Canyon was very heavily trafficked as opposed to the Clear Lake part of the trail which was incredibly serene. Also there is construction in the Toms Cabin portion of the lower rim and the trail does not connect back down near the Original trailhead. We had to hike the last mile along the road. The main issues with this trail were construction and all the people.

    The major downfall is that there are so many people. There is also a ton of construction on the alternate paths leading down to the falls. If you do this trail definitely take the path down to the riverside and hang out along the little beach.

    Christopher Naoum reviewed Lone Star Geyser Trail

    The hike is a nice easy hike through a beautiful forest along a river. You can also lengthen the hike with an off shoot spring trail. If you do this hike you need to stay for the geyser. It erupts about every 3 hours. The log tells you the last eruption times. If your there early continue past the geyser for a bit and come back. You can get so close!
