One of the June Lake Loop's standout hiking trails, the 3.8-mile (each way) trek to Yost Lake along Yost Creek climbs steadily up a wildflower-sprinkled High Sierra ridge. Expect to be hiking in both shade and sun, with demanding inclines and great scenery. The trailhead is marked off the June Lake Loop (Hwy. 158) near Double Eagle Resort & Spa. Options include branching off to Fern Lake at 1.5 miles in or descending down into town.
