Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States, looms over the border between the national park and Inyo National Forest. Its campgrounds and trails provide access to the summit, the John Muir Wilderness, and some of the most popular equestrian and backpacking destinations in the United States. The North and South Forks of the Kern River have been designated Wild and Scenic Rivers, and knowledgeable kayakers and rafters challenge their whitewater and steep, narrow gorges. There is something for every outdoor enthusiast in this spectacularly scenic, high-country area. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Portagee Joe, Lone Pine, Whitney Portal, Whitney Trailhead, Tuttle Creek, Diaz Lake, Golden Trout, Cottonwood Lakes, and Equestrian.
