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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
