6 mile out and back hike up to the top of Mammoth Mountain. Small snow patch at 10,000 feet that is easily traversed around. The Seven Lakes Point is beautiful although there is a lot of loose rock and scree that blocks the trail in many places. You can scramble over the loose rock to the trail. This section of the trail has some exposure. So be aware if you are sensitive to heights. Great adventure. Don't miss seeing the Lava Tube.

Very nice view from the top of the dome but otherwise an uninteresting trail for me. Maybe because it was so short

Views are extraordinary. Not sure what it takes for a "hard" distinction - 2500 vertical feet in 3 miles seems hard. Sliding down through a section of snow towards the top was a little tricky. Trail well marked. 6 miles round trip from trailhead to Gondola tower.

Water level is high and lake is beautiful. A little snow remains. This was so much fun to mountain bike I did the loop twice.

Good first hike when arriving at this elevation. I did not do the return portion of the round trip. Instead I walked into town on Sherwin Creek Road so I missed the up-hill portion of the hike. As a result, it was an easy hike.

Fun Short Hike... here is the video I did from the hike and the top of the dome.
