Black Point Fissures Trail is a 1.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Lee Vining, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until November.
This cross-country adventure explores a high-desert volcanic cone in search of bizarre box canyons in miniature. NOTE: There is no trail. This is a cross-country route over rock and sand and through thick sagebrush. Without a trail, this hike is an adventure. You are not likely to get seriously disoriented anywhere on Black Point, a hill surrounded by open country for miles around, but if you are inexperienced with cross-country travel, this hike may not be for you. A compass might help but isn't necessary if you are observant and have a basic sense of direction. Wear long pants for bushwhacking, and bring water and a hat.
