Lundy to Oneida Lake Trail is a 8.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Lee Vining, California that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
The remarkable old road to the May Lundy Mine now serves only as a footpath for hikers to explore the austere alpine scenery of Lake Canyon and the remains of one of the Eastern Sierra's most remote mining settlements.
This trail was rewarding at the end, when you get to beautiful Oneida lake. But the trek up to the lake is very monotonous at times. The trail is an old service road that is no longer used, and is full of loose rock ; it's very easy to sprain an ankle. The elevation gain is pretty much constant the whole way up, with very little flat spots to give you a break from the climbing. On the way up there is an abandoned lumber mill which is fun to look at. It gets very windy up at Oneida lake so bring a windbreaker even if it is warm outside.
