  • Great moderate hike to the falls...very scenic and a nice place to relax after the hike and to see the area  more »
  • We took the bus from the Mammoth ski lodge in the Park. From there we took the trail to Devils turnpile and then continued to Rainbow Falls. It takes about 2 hours and brought water. Beautiful and easy walk. Deserves the waterfall-when the Sun is shining you always see the Rainbow. Lovely place.

  • We found the directions very very bad. Advance was not indicated how long the hike would be. And during the hike were little signs. That is why we went back to the car after a few 100 metres.
