Where is Devils Postpile National Monument?
One of the unfairly least visited national Monuments in California is Devils Postpile, which is located on the east side of the Sierra Nevada between that mountain range and Death Valley on the other side.
The comparatively low number of visitors has its reasons, which should be removed because of the once again so unique views but, if somehow possible…
The Devils Postpile National Monument is located west of Mammoth Lakes, about 60 kilometers south of Lee Vining at the east end of Yosemite National Park, and about 200 kilometers north of Lone Pine, which is usually the starting point for a visit to Death Valley.
From this description the first small Problem arises, because the natural monument can only be approached sensibly if one drives the round through the valley of death and over the Tioga Road in Yosemite. Then there is the short detour from Highway 395, which can be easily combined with the Alabama Hills, Mono Lake and maybe Bodie in one day.
