Things To Do
Devils Postpile offers a wide range of things to do in all seasons. Summer months offer wildflower and wildlife viewing, hiking, and fishing. Fall brings changing colors and fewer visitors, offering an opportunity for solitude. Although the monument is closed in the winter and spring months, annual snowfall of over 400 inches provided a winter recreation paradise for determined visitors who venture into the valley.

Did You Know?
The area now known as Devils Postpile National Monument used to be part of Yosemite National Park. In 1905, the Devils Postpile formation, Rainbow Falls, and the Minarets were removed from Yosemite's boundaries due to pressure from mining interests.
