Inyo County 4×4 trails offer access to the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and southeast of Yosemite National Park in eastern-central part of the U.S. state of California. Inyo County includes the Owens River Valley; it is flanked to the west by the Sierra Mountains, and to the east by the White Mountains and the Inyo Mountains.
Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the Continental United States, is on Inyo County’s western border (with Tulare County). The Badwater Basin, in Death Valley National Park, the lowest place in North America, is in eastern Inyo County. The two points are not visible from each other, but both can be observed from the Panamint Range on the west side of Death Valley, above the Panamint Valley.
There are opportunities to travel into the high country of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. When in the Sierra Nevada be sure to pack for and use proper bear storage.
Inyon County has its share of history. Manzanar Relocation Camp recounts a darker chapter of American history.
