Friends of the Inyo is excited to announce our newest Trail Ambassador Kayla Browne.

After experiencing the beauty of the Eastern Sierra for the first time thru-hiking in 2017, Kayla knew she needed to make this area her home. Since moving to Lone Pine from her home state of Michigan she’s become involved with the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group and has taken part in Bureau of Land Management cleanup days picking up trash, disassembling fire rings, and painting climbing bolts in the Alabama Hills. Whenever she’s not hiking in the mountains, Kayla can be found mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, or ice climbing. She enjoys educating visitors about the area and loves to throw in “fun facts” about the Eastern Sierra and Owens Valley. When you see her on the trail, be sure to say ‘hello’ and share your own interesting tidbit.
