Before living in Mammoth, this was a trail I did often when visiting in the summer. Now that I live here, I do this trail multiple times a week and then go around Horseshoe as well. The trail isn't long, but has some elevation gain. If you aren't used to the altitude, don't be ashamed of stopping and catching your breath! The views around McCloud are spectacular. Great place to bring your dogs and let them splash in the lake. Also a great place to take a dip yourself!
As of today, just a patch or two of snow. Be careful as one has some water flowing through and looks like it might not be safe to walk over in another few days.
