Things to Do at Huntington Lake
Known as one of California's primary sailing lakes, Huntington Lake is surrounded by mountains and boasts several marinas that offer rentals, mooring, and launching facilities. Kiteboarders can also take advantage of the lake's ideal wind conditions, while anglers flock here for trout and Kokanee salmon.
The network of trails around Huntington Lake is prime for trekking through trees to backcountry lakes alongside majestic granite peaks and stunning scenery. Whether on foot or on horseback (guided services are available), weave your way through this gorgeous wilderness looking for wildlife, and relax to the soothing sounds of nature. If you're in the mood for a picnic, the north side of the lake is the place to go!
While biking on the designated wilderness trails may not be allowed, bikers often make the challenging climb on the paved forest access roads to gaze out at beautiful mountain and valley views on the way.
In the winter, Huntington Lake's Sno-Park areas provide fun-filled days of tubing and sledding, while nearby China Peak Resort offers slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding.
