Hiking to Upper Kinney Lake is a great way to enjoy the afternoon, the sunset, or a night out with the family. This no-fuss, short, and pretty hike teems with wildflowers in midsummer and features breathtaking views into the rugged Eastern Sierra and the Great Basin Range. Upper Kinney’s placid waters are an excellent mirror for reflecting the alpenglow off Silver Peak and provide opportunities for fishing (when stocked) and swimming.
