Rainbow Falls Trail (DPNM)

California by v8.6m

Activities & Features


Rainbow Falls in Devil's Pilepost National Monument is a popular hike for good reason. It's a relatively easy hike when compared to most high Sierra treks. The trail does not gain too much over elevation, making it suitable for children, though it's 5 miles round trip length may be a concern. This hike can be very hot in the summer time so make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. There is camping available in Devil's Pilepost National Monument.
