The Parker Lake Trail at Inyo National Forest in June Lake, California is a difficult 3.8-mile out-and-back hike out to Parker Lake. This trail also lies within the Ansel Adam Wilderness.

The trail starts at the end of Parker Creek Trail (which is a road, not a trail) and immediately ascends a steeper-grade hill for about a half-mile. After the first half-mile, the trail continues to ascend, but at a more gradual grade. Around mile 1.7, the trail finally evens out and descends slightly towards Parker Lake.

The entire hike runs along Parker Creek, which makes it easy to filter water when needed.

Camping / Backpacking: Camping and backpacking is allowed on this trail with plenty of campsites by Parker Lake.

Dogs and mountain biking are allowed on this trail as well.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
