The trail is strenuous, but very rewarding. Starting from Twin Lakes campground, this trail will take you by the bottomless pit, seven lakes view point, and several other great viewing spots.

Excellent hike, very strenuous but worth the effort. I've done it several times, but I've never hiked down the mountain, I've always gone to the very top of the mountain taken the gondola back to Mammoth Lodge and caught the bus back to The Village. For me the uphill climb is a great workout, I'd rather do it twice the climb up and then back down. I've never been asked for a ticket so why pass up a free gondola ride?

Nice top to bottom hike :) the views are incredible. 7 lakes point is super nice!! don’t try to go down the lava tube. The ground is really soft and dangerous. Did it in 1.5 hours at a medium pace and stopping often.

I’d do this hike every day if I could! The whole way up is a steep incline which makes for a great work out. I was anticipating there being snow blocking the path but didn’t find any except at the summit. Be sure to keep right and to not go the way of the mountain biking trail.

Great scenery along the way and perfect moderate hike. It's a little dangerous at the top this late in the season (November review) but if you are in the area and looking for a great hike... this is you trail.
