Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip To See Northern California Like Never Before

The Eastern Sierra is a stunning and sometimes rarely traveled slice of Northern California. In particular, the June Lake Loop makes for an amazing autumn road trip through breathtaking scenery you have to see to believe.

Begin your road trip on the southern end of the loop on Highway 395 and wind your way west. You be amazed by the jaw dropping peaks and incredible contrast between the blue sky and yellow aspens on this scenic fall drive.

Fall really is a spectacular time in Northern California. There is no better way to take in the amazing autumn colors in our state than to take a drive around the beautiful June Lake Loop.
