Color Me Up

Color Me Up


On your next full day in the Eastern Sierra, take a take a leaf-peeping excursion in the vicinity of Conway Summit, Virginia Lakes or Lundy Canyon, where you‚'ll be rewarded with sweeping views and, if you hit it right, carpets of color that will take your breath away.

If you're a hiker, dog-friendly Virginia Lakes Resort  offers myriad options right out the door. This popular cabin resort on the shores of Little Virginia Lake is at the center of a web of trails leading to 10 lakes within a mile, five of them less than a 30-minute walk away. RV travelers with pets get a super-friendly reception and lots of advice on where to spot fall color at the Meadowcliff Lodge & RV Resort at the base of Centennial Bluffs, an impressive geological formation on the west side of Highway 395 just south of Coleville.

Just passing through? The Robinson Creek Trail to Barney Lake is one of several paths that will transport you into the spectacular granite realm of the Hoover Wilderness, which shares a border with Yosemite National Park. It's OK for your dog to be off-leash here and on other national forest trails so long as she's under voice control.
