Rock Creek to Long Lake

Mammoth Lakes, California

Rock Creek to Long Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This short but memorable hike begins at the highest trailhead in the Sierra, passing 5 timberline lakes brimming with hungry trout and set beneath 13,000-foot crags. The hike through Little Lakes Valley follows an old double track that once was the primary access to the Pine Creek tungsten mines. It makes an excellent day hike, especially for people staying at one of the campgrounds on Rock Creek, and for those who are interested in a chance to stretch their legs and do some backcountry fishing."
