The Fern Lake Trail is one of the more difficult hikes in the June Lake…
The Walker Lake trail is an interesting one. The best part about it, it starts with a gorgeous view! The hike is only about a mile each way, but it is one of the more difficult hikes in the June Lake Loop due to its incline. In the short mile you hike, there is an elevation difference of 800 feet!
The image above is the view just past the trail head! You start up at the top and work your way down to the lake. You get a beautiful view of Walker Lake right from the get-go. The hike is all downhill from here.
Down near Walker Lake, there are tons of trees that create a beautiful ambiance.
Once you are down at the end of the trail, you can take a beautiful walk around the lake. You’re likely to see a deer or two.
I haven’t fished Walker Lake, but it looks peaceful enough on the boat to be worth it regardless of whether or not the fish are biting!
