You can't do much better than the Barney Lake trail if you're looking for an ideal day trip.  The terrain changes from sagebrush filled, dry western-style valleys, to patches of aspen forest, to wet grassy meadows, and on up to picture perfect alpine lakes.  Hovering over it all are the bold and craggy peaks of the Hoover Wilderness.  Starting from the civilized resort outpost on Twin Lakes in the eastern Sierra, this trail is the first section of a continuing leg that leads up to the equally scenic Peeler lake, and ultimately the backcountry of Yosemite National Park via Kerrick Meadow.  But the trip to Barney Lake is a complete trek in itself, and contains scenic rewards aplenty.
