Rainbow Falls

Hike to Rainbow Falls
The San Joaquin River plunges more than 100-feet over volcanic cliffs creating a spectacular waterfall. When the sun is shinning just right, the mist from the waterfall creates a stunning rainbow.

Rainbow Falls is located in the Red's Meadow Valley in the Devils Postpile National Monument and can be accessed by a three-mile round trip hike. The nearby Red's Meadow Pack Station also offers horseback rides to Rainbow Falls. Don’t miss the steps down to the base of the falls for a dip in the pool!

The Reds Meadow Valley is open in summer months and is only accessible by a mandatory shuttle bus that departs from Mammoth Mountain’s Adventure Center.
