Inyo National Forest
The Inyo National Forest is a place of breathtaking beauty and undisturbed solitude where every canyon is unique, every trail displays a different character and every day brings with it a new adventure. The forest takes its name from Inyo County in which much of the forest resides. The name "Inyo" comes from a Native American word meaning "dwelling place of the great spirit" and was used by local Native Americans to describe the local mountains now known as the White and Inyo Mountain Range.
