The Chocolate Lakes Loop Trail is a 7.4 mile hike in Inyo National Forest in the Eastern Sierras. The trail features many glorious alpine lakes, hidden gems that are hard to access outside of the summer months.

Begin at the South Lake Wildflower Trail and head toward Chocolate Peak (the brown peak on the horizon). Take note that the trail is not maintained once it leaves the main trail by long lake. Previous hikers have left rock cairns along the path to indicate the proper direction to take. It is suggested to hike the loop in a counter clockwise direction (bear right at the fork).

This trail allows dogs.
