California Points of Interest

Big Pine Area


Camping, fishing, hiking and backpacking draw many visitors to the Big Pine Creek Area every year.  Beautiful First Falls is a short walk from the picnick area. Longer hikes up the north fork trail leads to glacier fed lakes, First through Seventh lakes and great views into the Palisade Glacier Basin.  Overnight stays in the John Muir Wilderness require a wilderness permit.
