This trailhead and camping area is right on the edge of the Golden Trout Wilderness, the home of the California State Fish, the Golden Trout. Take Whitney Portal Road out of Lone Pine and turn onto the paved Horseshoe Meadows Road, which will carry you south across the base of the Sierra. There is a step set of switchbacks, and then the parking area for the Golden Trout Wilderness.
