June and Silver Lake
June Lake is a subalpine lake within the Inyo National Forest, in Mono County, eastern California. It sits at an elevation of 7,621 ft, and is located 20 miles North from Mammoth Lakes and 15 miles South from Lee Vining, California. It is one of the four lakes (June Lake, Gull Lake, Silver Lake & Grant Lake) inside the June Lake Loop. It is located about 5 miles south of the southern end of Mono Lake following U.S. Route 395 and then 2 miles west on State Route 158. Because the community is built on hills and meadows in this subalpine valley surrounded by high mountain peaks, it has been dubbed the "Switzerland of California." Fly fishing is considered one of the favorite summer time activities here. A small population of Lahontan cutthroat trout can be found in June Lake, along with an abundant population of rainbows. There are two marinas at June Lake: June Lake Marina and Big Rock Resort.
June Lake offers many trails that lead into the nearby back country of the Ansel Adams Wilderness Area. Most of the hikes, including Fern Lake, Reversed Peak, and Agnew Lake are strenuous and vertical, with the exception of the Parker Lake Trail which is a 2-mile hike that only climbs 400 feet in elevation. Along many of these trails are tiny unnamed creeks, most of which hold wild populations of trout.
