Lone Pine Lake Trail

Lone Pine, California

Lone Pine Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The hike to Lone Pine Lake, set in a natural cathedral of granite spires and peaks, is not only superlatively scenic but also an opportunity to hike along the historic, famous, and heavily traveled Mount Whitney Trail as it climbs 11 miles to the top of the highest peak in the Lower 48. Dogs are welcome on the first 2.8 miles to Lone Pine Lake before the trail transitions from Inyo National Forest to Kings Canyon National Park, where dogs are not allowed on trails."
