Leaving Whitney Portal


Hikers generally hitchhike from Whitney Portal to Lone Pine if they don’t have a car or a person picking them up. With so many day hikers going to Mt. Whitney, it’s generally pretty easy to get a ride into town. From Lone Pine, you can take an Eastern Sierra Transit bus to Reno, Mammoth Lakes, or Lancaster.
