In 2019, a spring fyke net survey demonstrated that northern pike populations are stable; largemouth and smallmouth bass populations are also balanced across both species of bass; it also serves as an extremely popular winter fishery due to its abundance of panfish as well as mountainous terrain that creates ideal ice conditions during January and February.

Lake Parker is one of Polk County’s premier recreational boating lakes due to its deep waters, average depth of five feet, and outstanding Florida largemouth bass fishing opportunities.

Parker Lake Trail offers stunning scenery while remaining manageable for most hikers. At just over three miles round trip and with elevation gains of nearly 600 feet from its parking area, this out-and-back trail covers approximately 3.6 miles round trip and makes an outbound journey with stunning vistas along its route through shadeless chaparral, pine forest, and finally reaching calm, blue waters of June Lake Loop – making this hike a favorite fishing spot!

The trail is well maintained and can be hiked year-round; however, for optimal wildflower viewing and fall color viewing, it’s recommended to visit during late spring/early summer and autumn months. Also suitable as a family hike, dogs must remain leashed when hiking this trail – while wilderness permits must be obtained annually to visit for extended stays, and there is a maximum capacity per visit at one time.

To reach the trailhead, take exit 291 off Highway 395 at the northern end of June Lake Loop (Hwy 158). Head west for approximately one mile until you reach a dirt road where the Parker Lake road sign can be seen on your left side. Be mindful that parking space may be limited.

This hike offers stunning views of Mono Lake and the surrounding high desert. While partially shaded by trees, its exposure to direct sunlight means it can get hot during midsummer.
