Inyo National Forest and Devils Postpile Plan for Busy Labor Day

2018-01-31T10:49:37-08:00

Visitors can take steps to avoid crowds and queues

The Inyo National Forest and the Devils Postpile National Monument anticipate a busy holiday weekend. Like many parks and forests, Inyo National Forest and Devils Postpile are seeing high visitation this year. Here are some helpful tips for people planning to visit the Reds Meadow Valley and Devils Postpile over the Labor Day weekend.

The mandatory shuttle system manages the limited parking available as well as the high visitation along this narrow road into this special valley.

  • Pick up the shuttle from the Village at Mammoth or park at the Mammoth Mountain Main Lodge and purchase your shuttle passes at the Main Lodge Gondola Building (Adventure Center).
  • The bus ride takes approximately 30-40 minutes each way. Most visitors should allow a half-day or even a full day to enjoy and explore Devils Postpile, Rainbow Falls, and the lakes. Sturdy walking or hiking shoes, water, sun screen, snacks, and proper clothing layers are a must.
  • Labor Day weekend will be crowded with more difficult parking at the Main Lodge and longer queues and wait times at bus stops. To have a better visit, plan to come early in the morning and allow enough time in your day to visit these locations and plan waits at the stops into your schedule.
  • Sunday is typically the busiest day. Try to plan your trip for alternative days and times if you want to have a quieter experience. Alternatively, if your itinerary only allows travel on the weekend, particularly Sunday, plan on queues, pack your patience, and remember that you are in the magical Reds Meadow Valley.

Visitors can take some additional precautions for a safe and enjoyable experience. Although the day may be hot, the lake and river waters can be very cold and dangerous for swimming.
