Lake George Trail
An adventurous route, Lake George Trail brings you along the shoreline of its namesake. Although relatively short and with little elevation fluctuation, the majority of the route is not on a designated Inyo National Forest pathway and so navigation can be difficult at times. Nevertheless, the scenery is beautiful and the route is regarded as an excellent place to view wildlife.

Route Description for Lake George Trail
Prior to attempting Lake George Trail, it is important to understand that the vast majority of the route is not along a designated Inyo National Forest pathway. This means that much of the route is overgrown with vegetation and that little to no signs exist to help in your wayfinding. Depending on the time of year you plan on doing the Lake George Trail, mosquitoes can also be rather prolific, so plan accordingly.
With your vehicle parked along Lake George Road, make your way to the Coldwater Campground to Lake George Trail. Follow the trail southeast as it makes its way alongside the eastern shore of Lake George. Having passed the first bay on the eastern shore of the lake, the Lake George Trail veers off the established pathway while continuing to head alongside the lakeshore to the south.
From here, the Lake George Trail continues to follow the shoreline of Lake George - crossing creeks and navigating the fluctuating terrain. The vegetation is rather overgrown throughout much of the route, so take your time and do not venture too far from the lakeshore. Having circumvented the lake, the route will deliver you back to Lake George Road, where your vehicle will be waiting for you.
