Lundy Canyon Trail

One of the most highly regarded hikes in the Eastern Sierra for wildflowers and fall colors. Lundy Canyon Trail is about 3 miles, beginning at the end of Lundy Lake Rd. It's an out-and-back journey into a vibrant canyon landscape brimming with Eastern Sierra life and scenery, including a waterfall and beaver dam. Level of difficulty is moderate-to-intense. Extend the hike to Lake Helen, 20 Lakes Basin, Saddlebag Lake and the eastern edge of Yosemite. To find the trailhead, take Hwy. 395 seven miles north of Lee Vining and go west. Follow Lundy Lake Rd. for about two miles.
