Ascent Trip ReportFollowed the Dragon's Back Trail via Seven Lakes Viewpoint from the back of Twin Lakes campground... no parking at the trailhead so parked at Tamarack Lodge.
Once at the top walked around a bit for the views (throughout the hike there are views to the south but the Ritter Range is out of sight until the summit). We then hopped on the gondola for the free ride down... then free buses took us back to Twin Lakes. Maybe didn't save a lot of time but I'd much rather hike up than down.
First time I actually visited the lakes around Mammoth as far as I can remember. I must say I do not get the appeal... they are exceeding crowded and there are other options literally everywhere else in the Sierra!
