This is one of the kinds. Go see it. You will not find it anywhere else in the whole world. While you are on the trail, you have stream of river on the side of the trail. It's a nice / wide trail.

Take the shuttle from the village. The shuttle drops you off at a stop which you walk less than a mile to the Post Pile. Great photo opportunity.

A nice complement, with the Rainbow falls, to the Yosemite-visit we made over Tioga pass. Don't forget Lake Mono!

Went after 7pm and drove down to see it. Quite a hike for me even though only about half a mile. Also I went to the top and the climb up the hill with rocky stairs left me out of breath. Smallish area with loud folks and kids playing around. Not worth the time to me except as maybe a field trip for future geologists. The drive was sketchy at dark. It's a pretty slow go on a narrow, crooked road. Lots of rocks fell down on the road on the way out.

I decided that our family would stop by this national park because it is truly an amazing sight to see. There are several options you can take within the park that include hiking and seeing the Rainbow Falls. The shuttle bus was convenient and if you get there early, (the first shuttle leaves at 7:30 a.m and the parking is free) you can pay the driver and not wait for the ticket counter to open. The ride to the monument is filled with sharp turns, oncoming traffic up and down a 1 1/2 lane road, and spectacular views. The hike to the monument is an easy one on a dirt trail. The Ranger Station is a small shack that has a few postcards and books for sale but nothing like some of the other Welcome Centers we have encountered. There are restroom facilities close to the Ranger Station for use before getting back on the shuttle to go to the car.
