We were lucky to get a parking spot at the trailhead. We thoroughly enjoyed the views on the walk and the hike was very easy. We enjoyed scrambling to the top of the rocks near the lakes for magnificent views and photo ops.

Beautiful hike, goign as far as you want, or even up to Mono Pass. Take sunscreen and water, it can get hot.

This is a gorgeous area to hike and you can get to some breathtaking views without spending your whole day hiking to a destination. Some parts of the trail are steep, but all in all, the hike is relatively easy.

Wild flowers were in bloom in late July and got an early start so the light would be warm and the air cool. A few pockets of mosquitoes here and there when stopping to photograph, but nothing that Deet could not handle. A must hike...More

This is the easiest and busiest of the hikes we took during our week in Bishop, California. The Sierras are spectacular. It is late July and there is still a lot of snow on the mountains. All the lakes are full, the rivers and streams...More

We voted. It's unanimous that this scenery is better than the Rockies. Move all your storage to the SD card so you'll have enough space for almost non-stop photos. It's mid-June and the mountains are still capped with snow.

The Little Lakes Trail is deceptive. It starts at 10,000 and climbs. It is one of the most incredible places where you can be away from the hustle and bustle of civilization in minutes and walk on a trail that is really geared for young...More

The roads in the area are all very good. We don't have 4-wheel drive and it was very accessible.

We always have hiked passing several lakes up to Long Lake and I estimate it to be 2-3 miles round trip. It is easy for all ages and so scenic you don't realize you went any distance at all. The only consideration will be... More
