June Lake Loop: June Lake Loop is a 14-mile loop off Highway 395 beginning about fifteen miles north of Mammoth and exiting back on Highway 395 a few miles south of Lee Vining.  Noted for its scenic beauty and towering mountains, the loop winds through elegant summer homes, June Lake Village and four lakes: June, Gull, Silver and Grant Lake.  Reverse Creek, joining Gull Lake with Silver Lake, and Rush creek, joining Silver Lake and Grant Lake provide additional fishing and picnicking opportunities. For those who enjoy day hikes, Parker Lake and Walker Lake provide good fishing opportunities.  June Lake Loop is another Sierra scenic wonderland.
