Barney Lake

Great Hike with some incredible views! This hike is relatively easy - for those of us "in-shape" ...my 9 yr old daughter did it and we only had to stop 2 times. A good portion of this climb is shaded. The beach at Barney Lake is wonderful and the view of lake is stunning! Fishing was bad, as well as the mosquitoes. Thank GOD for other hikers that gave us some of the Deet oil, which kept the mosquitoes away.
Note: the last mile is mostly a "single-track" trail so, hit the hike early in the day and you won't encounter as many hikers.

done this hike a few times. pretty easy hike. the first 3 miles are easy but the last mile to the lake is a bit harder. beautiful sceneries through the aspen forest and robinson creek. mid june to mid july mosquitoes are really bad. they will bite through your clothing. we were there last day of 06/2014 and probably got stung hundreds of times even with bug spray. fishing was great. powerbait and salmon egg didn't do too well. caught 2. live worms and kastmaster lure did really well. seem like every cast i was able to hook one. we camped about 1.5 miles up from the lake and did a day hike to robinson lake, crown lake, and snow lake for some more fishing. all lakes and stream were great for fishing. caught 10 within 5 minutes at snow lake. again, mosquitoes were really bad. confirmed with a couple of rangers that by mid july, the mosquitoes all of the sudden, GONE. funny thing was, when we cross over to Yosemite, there were no mosquitoes at all. weird!

Highway 108 to Sardine Falls
by

1 Completed 1 Reviews

I've hiked up to the Sardine Fall a number of times and taken others up there too. Even my wife with asthma made it up there easily too. Me and a hiking partner that I used to have, we have hiked (back in 2006) all the way to the top (estimate 5 miles, one way) of the mountain to where it is very breathtaking beautiful too. I'm planning to take another hike up there in the near future, again.

My house just burnt down on June 16th. Everyone got out safely, but nothing else was saved. All of my photos and DVD's of photo files are gone. Thank God that I have a lot of my photos on websites and the website companies will put my photos onto DVD's and send them to me. I'll share some photos, when I get them.

Just hiked from mono village to Barney lake, camped 1.2 miles north of the lake. Moderate hike uphill, 5.7 miles to our site. Gorgeous nature views, highest temperature 84, nights warm
Stayed 2 nights, hiked to peeler lake and Yosemite border. Bad thing is, millions of mosquitos!

Buckeye Hot Springs Ride
by

23 Completed 10 Reviews

Of all the public hot springs on the "east side", Buckeye offers a free and diverse arena for a broad variety of people to enjoy one of nature's spectacular gifts. In the day time, families flock to enjoy the fishing and the natural baths. When the sun goes down it's better to at least be mindful of "hot spring etiquette". If you plan to bring the family at night, it's a great practice to survey the scene before actually bringing the family for a dip...
All in all, the people that I have come in contact with at Buckeye are very respectful.The fishing is great there, and there is unincorporated camping as well as an established camp ground. The pools are man-made of rock and mud and vary in temperature depending on who is soaking. The middle pool with the over-hang is generally the hottest. I absolutely love soaking at night starring up at the sky. There is something magical about soaking in naturally hot water, listening to the river that you can only vaguely see, and watching the stars circle above your head. It's a great place to be silent and listen. But it's also a fun place to hang out and meet new people from far away places.

Great day hike or run through a spectacular east side canyon to a beautiful peaceful lake. An excellent choice from there is to continue uphill to lakes at the border of the Hoover wilderness and Yosemite for an overnight trip.

The trail head is accessed in the horrible Annett's Twin Lakes RV campground. Walk to the rear along the campground road on the north edge of the meadow. You quickly leave the busy, noisy campground and are soon on a lovely wooded trail near Robinson Creek. There are open sections, parts through aspen groves, small stream crossings, dramatic craggy mountains, ancient slides, and a lake to cool your toes in. Enjoy!

Loved this hike. Beautiful views and you quickly feel like you've disappeared into the deep Sierra. Not great fishing at the lake.

I hiked starting in the campground at twin lakes up to barney and then continued on to peeler lake, we did it as a day hike, and let me tell you that doing it in a day is super tough. but the views and the sense of accomplishment are well worth it if you are in the area its a great hike
