Gull Lake Trail
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 🙂
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…
…a rope swing!! The water was definitely brisk, but so refreshing!
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.
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!
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.
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!
Oh, yeah. There is great fishing on Gull Lake as well 🙂
