Video of our Hike to Lone Pine Lake
Lone Pine Lake is 1 of 5 lakes that are supplied by the East Inlet. This is a popular destination due to the amount of camping sites in the area, and a well maintained trail that offers amazing scenery all the way up to the lake. We hike to Lone Pine Lake on 10/11/2020 along with the other four lakes of the East Inlet drainage. If you want to continue hiking up to the next lake, Lake Verna, is about 1.5 miles from Lone Pine Lake.
The hike to Lone Pine Lake is a scenic one. Some of the main destinations you will pass on your way to the lake are Adams Falls, and the East Meadow. The East Meadow is probably the most photographed location on the East Inlet Trail.
