Wood Chuck Lake Trail is a 18 mile out and back trail located near Mono Hot Springs, CA that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from July until September. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
I agree with the previous reviewer that the distances are longer than stated.
I have included a link to my review.
I blelieve the trail is longer than 18mi, according to our GPS is was 12.5mi in making it 25mi round trip. There are A LOT of switchbacks. Pretty much the whole way there is up hill, climbing about 3,500ft.
