California’s Eastern Sierra

Mono Lake - Old Marina

An ideal Mono Lake photo op and chance to explore! Located just off Hwy. 395 one mile north of Lee Vining, Old Marina is a scenic point of interest and one of the easiest spots to get a quick glimpse of Mono Lake, including an up-close view of several large tufa towers and the lake's islands. There is a short trail to the water's edge, and a handicapped-accessible path leading to the David Gaines Memorial Boardwalk. A 1.5-mile trail built in 2009 goes from Old Marina to the Mono Basin Scenic Area Visitor Center.
