An easy stop on the way to Devils Postpile National Monument from Mammoth Lakes. Spectacular views of the Minarets, with picnic area, toilet, and trailhead.
Cascade is probably one of the best short hikes you can do in the Emerald Bay area. It is only 1.5 miles round trip from the Bayview Campground. Stepped out along the rocks, the trail will lead you to the top of the falls with great views of Cascade Lake and, of course, Lake Tahoe! The waterfall is about 200 feet and is very impressive in late spring and early summer. This is one of the most popular in the area, so parking will be difficult.
