Hike to the Waterfalls of Lundy Canyon

3 Miles Round Trip - 200 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Lundy Canyon Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Matt Purciel

One of the best day hikes in the Eastern Sierras. Spend the day hiking through a canyon with pristine views, aspen forests and waterfalls. 

In order to get to the trail you first have to drive past the beautiful Lundy Lake nestled in deep canyon. When the pavement ends continue for a couple miles as the scenery gets more amazing passing two beaver ponds and an Indian head. The hike begins where the dirt road ends in a loop. 

The trail starts in aspen forest and soon leads to another pond. The path follows the ridge and leads to a sweeping 360 degree view of the canyon along with cascading waterfalls.

Depending on how much time you have, you could stop here and just enjoy the views. But if you continue, you’ll be treated to more beaver dams, stream crossings, aspen groves, a meadow, and then, finally another spectacular waterfall.The trail can be taken all the way up to Lake Helen but does require a bit of elevation gain. Hiking to Lake Helen and back is a total of 5.6 miles.
