The hot springs are amazing. Hit them on day 6 of an 8 day trip. Some cool camping spots too. The hike out of Reds Meadow and back is long and very hot. The switchbacks coming down to Fish Creek are very steep. This hike is definitely a backpacking trip, not a day hike.

Fantastic hike up through the valley and into the Sierras. There were a few areas with snowpack at the higher elevations but the trail is totally fine. The trail starts out with a gradual climb but levels off after the first 3 miles. Would highly recommend for a full length day hike if you have the time!

This is a great walk from bus stop 7 to stop 10...or the other way around...great views of the lake and the falls with the egg shape formation was very cool...what I found interesting is that two park rangers had no knowledge of this small waterfall when I asked them for additional trail information...hike safe folks!

National Monument closed due to washed out road. Hiked in via Mammoth Pass. Excellent hike with no people at the monument. Challenging hike on way back to Horseshoe Lake but luckily snow is almost gone. I would rate this hike as moderate to hard.

We did the trail from the bus last stop back to the scotcher lake stop. Unfortunately one side of the Scotcher lake trail was closed so we coul dnot make it as a loop.
This Dino Fall is mentioned in a lot of guides, but I could not find anywhere the GPS tracks for it so this is why I created the trail
