Nature Viewing

Choose from the following to find a site:


The ridges, slopes, lakes basins and valleys of the Inyo National Forest are so infinitely varied that visitors will find endless opportunities for nature viewing. It is a land of extremes, from hot desert sagebrush country to lush, green meadows, icy lakes, towering pines and granite ridgelines; choose a climate zone and the Inyo will not disappoint. The contrast in elevation, from 5,000-foot alluvial plains to 14,000-foot summits, supports diverse populations of plants and animals. Head out on foot on any of the forest’s hiking trails to see what nature is capable of producing.
