Lone Pine Things to Do: 38 reviews and 90 photos

  Whitney Portal Falls, Lone Pine, California
by travelgirl3

Whitney Portal is located partway up Mt. Whitney, at an elevation of around 8,400'. It is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the US. From the trailhead, you can take one of a number of hikes along the trails, and see panoramic views and granite cliffs. The one I took lead to Whitney Portal Falls, pictured here.

Due to the high altitude, it's nice & cool on a hot summer day, but remember to pace yourself - there's also less oxygen and you may find you breathing laboured, and you might feel a headache coming on.

Directions: Whitney Portal is 13 miles west of Line Pine, at the end of Whitney Portal Road
