Thus I stand corrected on my Lottery call. ONLY the Main Whitney Trail requires a lottery entry.
Keep in mind that although it isn't on the lottery, it still has very limited access. They allow only 10 per day on the mr-6 are reservable and 4 are walk-in. If you don't reseve one, you may have to attend the mini-lottery at the office that happens at 11am.
As a side note, I was forced to stand in line for the mini-lottery to get on the Big Pine trail last month at the lone pine office. I asked why, as I was outside the WZ, and they said that was the process for all permits at that office. They said it was due to unruly crowds. Unbelievable.
