Did this trail as park of a NPS nature snowshoe tour. Great little trail. Very easy. One bit of a steep incline but otherwise easy peasy.

Happened to see this trail as we were driving up the mountain. I’m so glad we stopped and hiked to the top. It’s a bit steep but it is short and worth the views at the top!

A very simple and short hike. The view is worth the short hike and you can see a waterfall in the distance.

For an overweight amature hiker, this was worth the blood sweat and tears. The incline is STEEP...however...if you take your time and take little breaks in between...you'll do just fine. The view is AMAZING once you get to the top...Panorama is for sure. I'll do it again next year. Enjoy y'all!!!

Easy trail to a nice panorama of Mammoth Lakes. It was windy up there but the view was worth it.

The trail is easy and short, there is still some snow near the summit just go around it. The views on the top are awesome and inspiring.

It’s a five stars because it’s easy for our kids and it’s always our first hike of an annual summer hike!

This 360 view point is amazing.

Easy path but steeply inclined with aerial view of Mammoth Lakes area at the top. A better bike path than hiking path.

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

Fun Short Hike... here is the video I did from the hike and the top of the dome. https://youtu.be/UbSlxTIZTzw

I gave this a 5 because it was an awesome panoramic view for modest effort. We hiked the bike trails up across from the upper lot at Twin Lakes because they did not want people back where the heavy equipment was clearing and reconstructing Lake Mary Rd. You need to keep an eye out on the right for the sign for the hiking trail. It is not a can't miss type of thing.. A bit of a snow scramble towards the top, but the effort was well worth it. Saw deer and a big cat pawprint along the way.

Somewhat strenuous, but well worth the effort to find as well as hike. Mostly uphill to the views at trails end, then back downhill.

Easy hike for great views. We took the long way down and walked through the Twin Lakes campground.

I loved the views you have a 360 view of Mammoth, Twin Lakes and the falls absolutely stunning. Found a memorial plaque on a rock. Great hike for the views.

Fun! Perfect for us (two parents and two little kids). A very manageable walk up to the top for some really nice views.

Short, fairly easy trail. Uphill at first, downhill to finish. Beautiful views overlooking Mammoth Lakes and surrounding valley. Passed a trail runner while doing it, would be good hill run!

On a way back we met bear , he walk about 100 foot from us . First impression - shock, but in a few second later we start to make noise and bear start slowly run to north east . I even pictured him , will posted here ! Nice view from top of dome but air was with smoke from huge forest fire 25 miles from us . Biggest fire this season locally covering 14000 acres!

Overall a pretty easy hike with a great view. We hiked up in rainy, overcast weather in May. We still enjoyed the view, although we could tell it would have been much better in clear weather. We had trouble finding and keeping the trail though. It didn't seem to be well-marked, except for a sign for a trailhead we never found.

I like to take people that don't hike much on this trail. Pretty easy and with little effort you get some great views.

This is a great little hike that is up/down. It will offer you huge views. This is a trail that is relatively short so elders and little ones should be able to do it! There are actually two trails-one take you to the top of the dome and is for hiking only. The second one is a multi use trail that allows for mountain biking which skirts the north side of the dome and drops you off about 1/4 mile from the top of the Mammoth Rock Trail. I like to link Panorama with Mammoth rock trail for an epic Mountain bike!
