Gull Lake Trail

Gull Lake SUP

Our recent trip to Gull Lake was a beautiful experience. I have been coming to June Lake ever since I was little, and had yet to explore the gem that is Gull Lake. Of the four main lakes in the June Lake Loop, Gull is the smallest; a factor that sometimes causes me to overlook it. Well if any of you have felt the same way, hopefully this post will help change your mind!

It is about a 2 mile loop around the lake, a perfect nature walk for all ages and skill levels! My wife and I hiked it in sandals 🙂

 

Gull Lake Trail

We started off on the West side of the Lake. About a quarter mile into the hike, we found my favorite attraction on the trail…

 

Gull Lake Rope Swing Brett

…a rope swing!! The water was definitely brisk, but so refreshing!

 

Gull Lake Campground

After drying off, we hiked along a little further. Along parts of Gull Lake are several camp grounds and picnic benches in beautiful locations. Not a bad place for a pit stop.

 

Gull Lake Gold

The trail takes you around a big golden field on the Northwest side of Gull Lake. The picture doesn’t even come close to doing it justice!

 

Gull Lake Deer

While hiking around Gull Lake you are bound to run into a couple of deer!

The light coming through the valley was so beautiful in the afternoon.

 

Gull Lake Fire Pit

Between June Lake and Gull Lake is called Interlaken. There is a tennis court, basketball court, playground for the kids, and this awesome fire pit!

 

Gull Lake Fishing

Oh, yeah. There is great fishing on Gull Lake as well 🙂
