About the location

The perfect roadtrip through the 395 scenic byway. Starting south you will pass by through the valley floor up to the higher elevation of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The Eastern Sierras is the perfect outdoor adventure for almost all seasons! Many people flock to the area especially in the summer when most of the snow has melted for some hiking and backpacking.

Guide Highlights

Google Map List

Eastern Sierras spans out to two counties in California. So not to get lost, I added to a link to the Google Map list of all the spots.

Travel Limitations

Currently, things are slowly opening back up in California. The only travel limitations explained in the guide is to Yosemite National Park.

Guide Summary

This guide list each town up through the 395 scenic byway. It starts off around the Owens Valley through Lone Pine and Bishop. Up higher elevation, the 395 passes through Mammoth Lakes, June Lake, Lee Vining, and Bridgeport. Through Lee Vining, you can take Tioga Pass to visit Yosemite National Park outside the Valley.

Each town lists the best food spots, places to camp or stay at, and outdoor activities to do! The guide is filled with enough adventure to last you for a week, but you can also make it a weekend trip by focusing on a few destinations too.

    One word my friends would describe me as is... ADVENTUROUS! I'm the one friend in the group who loves to plan epic trips and guarantees everyone has a good time. I'm also an avid hiker and have been to many trails from far exotic areas like Kilimanjaro to my own backyard in San Diego.
