Hiking in the Eastern SierraFew places on Earth offer such diverse hiking and trekking as Inyo County and the Eastern Sierra. Here you can summit the tallest mountain peak in the continental U.S., Mt. Whitney, stroll past ancient petroglyphs in the Owens Valley, and hike below sea level in Death Valley. Spring is the optimum season for seeing Death Valley carpeted in wild desert blooms. Fiery Aspens steal the show in the fall when deep reds and yellow swathe the Eastern Sierra. Nearly 98 percent of Inyo County comprises uninhabited mountains and desert protected by National Forest Service, National Park Service, or Bureau of Land Management agencies. Lace up your boots – there’s much to explore in Inyo County!
