Devils Postpile National Monument Road Closed for the Season
The road to Devils Postpile has been closed for the season. This will be updated as soon as a 2014 opening date has been announced.
Devils Postpile National Monument is located at 7,560 feet above sea level just west of the Sierra Nevada crest. As such, it experiences typical Sierran summer weather.
Afternoon thunderstorms are possible in July and August. Daytime temperatures can range from the mid-70s to to mid-80s (degrees fahrenheit). Evening temperatures can drop into the low 40s (and even the low 30s in the months of September and October).

Did You Know?
The Devils Postpile that you see today is only a fraction of the size the original lava flow formation that filled this valley. Natural processes, especially glaciers, have eroded the rest.
