California Points of Interest

Mount. Ararat

This is a Scenic Recreation Destination.  The Pacific Crest Trail lay just below this basalt rock outcrop, in the Little Bear Creek Valley.  About an hours drive west, then south on the Primary Forest Route 119, to the 23N60, then a 4WD only road, the 23N62X.  THIS IS NOT AN OHV AREA.  Mt. Ararat is a beautiful place for scenic views, photo opportunity, and to experience what feels like another world.  The Mt. Ararat area was formed in the Paleozoic Era, and is of the metavolcanic sequence.  Part of the Franklin Canyon Formation, this area consists mainly of meta-andesite, metadacite, metasodarhyolite, and metatuff.
