Lone-Pine is a small town located in the high desert country of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains within the Sequoia National Park. It can be reached via Highway 395, and only has one stop light in town, but does have plenty of good restaurants and shopping. The town of Lone Pine is considered the "Gateway to Mt. Whitney," which is the highest peak in the U.S. outside of Alaska at 14,496 feet. If you aren't into mountain climbing (which attracts many people to Lone Pine,) there are plenty of other activities in the area to keep you busy. Mountain biking is popular, as is trout fishing in the pristine mountain lakes and streams, and many dirt roads offer challenging rides for off road vehicles. Other activities near Lone Pine include golf, hiking, hang gliding and nature tours, and the entrance to Death Valley National Park is only about two miles away. There is also an annual film festival in Lone Pine that pays tribute to the history of film making in the area. Other places to explore include the Alabama Hills and various ghost towns - although Mt. Whitney, by far, is the biggest attraction in town. Climbing it isn't for everyone - it is tough, and steep and long, but if you are up for it, the trail is surprisingly accessible and extremely well maintained. However, just visiting and seeing the incredible views of this awesome mountain peak is worth the trip to Lone Pine.

Lone Pine Weather & Climate

The High Desert Country of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains enjoys a diverse climate in a unique geographical area of the country. The town of Lone Pine, for instance, is near both Death Valley, which is the lowest point in the United States, and Mt. Whitney, which is the highest peak in the lower 48 states. Four seasons with low humidity is the norm for this region. Far from the smog of the valley and cities below, this area of California has bright sunshine and fresh air during the day with brilliant star-filled skies at night. Summer days are generally hot, with occasional high clouds. The rest of the year, temperatures remain mild during the day but evenings can turn quite cold. Rain is minimal with January and February being the wettest months. With such variations in altitude, this region can experience sharp changes in both temperature and precipitation. It's best to remember if it's raining in the valley, it's most likely snowing in the mountains.
