Heart Lake, Little Lakes Valley, John Muir Wilderness, Sierras, California, USA.
A hiker follows Ruby Creek to Heart Lake, in scenic Little Lakes Valley, John Muir Wilderness, Inyo National Forest, Sierra Nevada, California, USA. Enjoy an easy, very rewarding hike from Mosquito Flat through Little Lakes Valley to Chickenfoot Lake and Gem Lakes. To reach the trailhead, turn off Highway 395 at Toms Place (15 miles south of Mammoth Junction) onto paved Rock Creek Road, and drive 10.5 miles to the end. We hiked the moderate trail to Morgan Pass, 7.5 miles round trip with 1250 feet cumulative gain; but you should skip the left turn to redundant Morgan Pass and instead turn right to visit the pretty Gem Lakes.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
