Fern Lake

The Fern Lake trail head is located on the June Lake Loop, about 1.5 miles from the village, close to Double Eagle Resort. You will see the trailhead sign from the road, Highway 158. Once you park, you will start ascending straight up the canyon. This hike is basically straight up to the lake and back down. Being very steep does has an advantage with views of the canyon as well as Silver, Gull, and June Lakes. This trail has a large waterfall about half way up. Once you arrive at the lake you can take in the high alpine scenery and fish for Brooke and Brown Trout. This trail offers a wonderful variety of wildflowers in late spring into summer as well as the gold and yellow foliage in the fall.
