June Lake Trail [PRIVATE PROPERTY] is a 4.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near June Lake, California that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from October until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
As the previous review stated this is NOT an actual trail/hike. You will come to a private property dead end very early on. When no trespassing signs also contain pictures of shotguns, we comply.
The road you take to get to the trail per the description takes you to a private residence which has very clear NO TRESPASSING signs posted. Others said just go through the property, but we are not comfortable with that so we did not proceed any further. Looks like you could access the trail from the June Lake day use area and not have to go across private property
This listing is a bit misleading, June Lake Loop is a 21 mile bypass ROAD, highway 158, very much a requirement if you are driving near Mono Lake on Hwy 395 in eastern CA. There are great access trails to the same areas people usually get to through Devil's Postpile / Agnews Meadow. Look at the Rush Creek Trailhead, for example, the hike up to Lake Agnew is a great gateway to this awesome Sierra Nevada backcountry.
And yes if you are riding your bike on Highway 158 be really careful the drivers are looking up at the steep granite glaciated walls of this awesome canyon, not you on your bike. Now there is also much shorter loop road around June Lake itself, just a few miles long, but that is just a part of the entire "June Lake Loop."
Didn't go the whole way but still a very fun hike. Probation would be good to go biking on as well.
Spectacular Lakes and Views...!!!! However, extreme caution needs to be paramount due to very narrow shoulders for biking and the volume of vehicle traffic that can be experienced. Many side trails can be taken for hikes as well as trail running opportunities.
