Lundy Canyon Trail

Are you looking for a gorgeous day hike through a canyon with incredible views, streams, and waterfalls? Then look no further than Lundy Canyon! Lundy is a little further away than some of the other areas we have shared about, but it is not to be overlooked.

Lundy Lake Road

Shortly after turning onto Lundy Lake Road, you will find Lundy Lake, fancy that! The road follows along the northern edge of the lake. To get to the trail, you want to keep following the road past the lake. It will turn into a dirt road, and you just keep following it along until you reach the trail head.

Lundy Canyon Beaver Dam

Right in the beginning of the hike you run in to this homemade lake, crafted by beavers! If you come to Lundy Canyon early in the morning you might be lucky enough to spot some beavers out and about. We weren’t so lucky, but the beaver dams themselves are an incredible sight to see!

There are a few of these peaceful little stream crossings along the trail.

This is another area that was dammed up by the beavers. The rising water from beaver dams kills most of the trees in the pool. It was such a strange sight to see.

I only showed you a small part of the beautiful Lundy Canyon hike. There is so much more to see in this canyon, including some amazing waterfalls! So what are you waiting for?! Get out there!

Lundy Canyon will take 30-40 minutes to get to if you are driving from the Double Eagle Resort and Spa. Take the highway 395 North passed Lee Vining and you will see a sign for Lundy Lake Road a few minutes later.
