Horseshoe Meadows Trailhead/Golden Trout Wilderness

Hiking Trail or Trailhead
Hikers can get quick, easy access to huge swaths of Wilderness by using the Horseshoe Meadows Trailhead.

This trailhead and camping area is right on the edge of the Golden Trout Wilderness, the home of the California State Fish, the Golden Trout. Take Whitney Portal Road out of Lone Pine and turn onto the paved Horseshoe Meadows Road, which will carry you south across the base of the Sierra. There is a step set of switchbacks, and then the parking area for the Golden Trout Wilderness.
