Route Description for Steelhead Lake via McGee Pass Trail
Steelhead Lake via McGee Pass Trail’s length and elevation incline make it a more challenging route than many found within Inyo National Park. The route is therefore likely not appropriate for those who do not consider themselves to be more experienced hikers. Likewise, in the springtime, large numbers of mosquitoes can be found along the route, and so it is recommended that you bring bug repellent.
Having arrived at the Trailhead, follow McGee Pack Station Trail as it makes its way west across terrain with a steady incline. The pathway will cross over several creeks before arriving at a junction within the trail. At the junction, take the western pathway onto McGee Pass Trail. Follow the route as it begins to veer to the south, crossing several more creeks as it goes.
Continue on along McGee Pass Trail as it heads south adjacent to McGee Creek. Having passed by a small lake on its eastern shore, the route will arrive at another junction. At this second junction, take the southernmost pathway onto Steelhead Lake Trail and follow it all the way to Steelhead Lake itself. Once you have had an opportunity to enjoy the sights found at the beautiful lake, simply backtrack your steps towards the trailhead.
