    Minaret Summit Road is closed from the middle of October until sometime in the spring, typically around late May or early June depending on the winter’s snowfall. During these months, it is necessary to park at Mammoth Mountain ski resort (you must obtain a special parking permit from the resort if parking there overnight), and hike in about 4 miles to the usual summer trailhead.
