The Devils Bathtub Trail is a 9.2 mile moderately hike in the Eastern Sierras, close to the Mono Hot Springs.

The views are incredible and the lake is peacefully tucked underneath a stunning peak. Dogs are allowed on this trail! The first 70% of the trail is moderate in difficulty, and the last 30% is a good challenge. The water is perfect for a dip on a hot Eastern Sierra day. This is also a popular fishing location. There are no campfires allowed at the lake. 

Make sure to frequently check the weather on a government forecast website - the Sierras are notorious for quickly changing weather, with thunderstorms and hailstorms a common theme. 

If you want to spend the night, you can find info about permits here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail...

Great Hike!

I did this hike with my family about 5 years ago. Great pack in, and not too strenuous, but the fishing was terrible!
