Winter is a great time to explore Lone Pine State Park. The trails offer a peaceful winter-wonderland experience that is perfect for every level of snowshoeing. Too cold outside? Beat your cabin fever at the visitor center with a variety of events and interpretive programs or play with your kids at rotating activity tables.
Throughout winter, the main parking lot will be maintained and plowed. However, due to budgetary limitations, the Valley View Trailhead parking area will not be plowed and will close Dec. 1.
Lone Pine State Park is open daily from 8 a.m. to sunset. Visitor center hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., and closed Monday and Tuesday. Snowshoe rentals are available for $5 per person or $10 per family.
