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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
