  • This is definitely worth a stop when visiting Mammoth. It's a very short walk from the parking lot to the fault. The fault is significant and you can walk down to the bottom in 2 different locations.....  more

  • It was very interesting to see. Having lived through the Northridge earthquake, it made me a little uneasy.

  • It's really cool to see but honestly it's not much. It just looks like a hole in the ground. Especially on a hot day, it's a bit overwhelming. Once you see the hole there isn't much else. Why 5 stars? Because it's free and made available for anyone interested. If you're interested it will be great, if not maybe pass.
  • Great hike, very doable in snowy conditions as well. Went on 3/14: no access to loop by car but you can park on the main road and hike up. Snow was dense enough to walk on without problems. Hiking boots definitely needed though.
