Looking to get outdoors and hike in the June Lake area. Try the

Yost Lake Trail: June Lake Loop

In the Sierra, where there’s a view, a stream or a lake, it is worth the effort to get there… and the Yost Lake Trail has all three. After crossing the narrow log footbridge, continue along the slope-side trail that gradually and steadily brings you up into higher elevations and eventually to scenic Yost Lake. The views down towards June Lake are equally as breathtaking and spectacular. This is a moderate hike at 4.8 miles round trip.

Note This Trail may Still have plenty of Snow even through we have had a weak winter. Plan accordingly, but worth checking out while you  are in the area.

Parker Lake Trail: June Lake Loop

From the north end of Highway 158 (June Lake Loop), take the Parker Lake Road to the trailhead parking. A short hike along the aspen-lined creek has a few switchbacks and offers big rewards with a serene lake tucked at the base of the Sierra Nevada’s. You can also sneak a peek at Mono Lake from this gorgeous hike.  This trail is easy to moderate at 4 miles round trip.
