The 2020 #BearFire #NorthComplex and the 2021 #DixieFire destroyed historic buildings, fire lookouts, old cabins, residential houses, small towns and rural communities; plus old growth forests and unimaginable numbers of wildlife. Many roads, trails and campgrounds are closed to the public; while reforestation may take many decades, if not a century.

2022 UPDATE: Most of this National Forest has been devastated by recent wildfires. Much of the forest in between Bucks Lake and Oroville is now totally toast. That’s a whopping 50 mile stretch, hence 318,935 acres. Expect campground closures, damaged trails and heavy logging activity. Charred forests also exist all the way around Indian Valley and Lake Almanor, and along Highway 70, east of Quincy, CA

PCT – Pacific Crest Trail is burnt from Bucks Lake to Lassen!

Wild & Scenic Middle Feather River is burnt 40+ miles, from the town of Quincy to Lake Oroville.

Cliff Lake Backpacking Trip, Marble Mountain Wilderness, California, Aug 2007

horse trail mapsThe Marble Mountain  Wilderness is an area of high divides, deep canyons and perennial mountain streams provides habitat for a wide variety of plant and animal life. With more than 7,000 feet of vertical relief, soils from several rock types, and abundant rain and snowfall, the diversity of ecosystems is unequaled anywhere else in the country.

fishing mapWith 89 lakes and two major Wild and Scenic river systems – Wooley Creek and the North Fork Salmon River, as well as 32 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, there are many recreation opportunities. Elevations range from 400 to 8,299 feet; the wilderness has highly variable terrain with low-elevation canyons and high ridges such as the 22-mile-long English Peak ridge.

Popular activities include fishing, backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, and cross-country skiing.

camp map

There are also numerous caves within this wilderness, accessible to prepared spelunkers. They all feature stalactites and other flowstone formations, and are accessible mostly by vertical drops. Due to the hidden nature of most of the cave mouths, caving is not regulated, though the Forest Service and National Speleological Society request only experienced cavers attempt to access these dangerous caves. Signs at the trail heads that access the Marble Rim warn of white nose syndrome. One of the deepest caves in the continental US is located in the wilderness, Bigfoot Cave.

Mineral King Sequoia

Mineral King Valley is inside the southern portion of SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK. Mountain passes access high Sierra terrain (only by foot trail) w/ Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon Highcountry and Golden Trout Wilderness.

camp mapsThe paved road access into this canyon (Mineral King Road) does become a dirt road for a few miles, about half way in. Pavement resumes and continues to the end – where the trailhead parking and campground is situated. Numerous creeks flow through this mountain region.

Mineral King Topo

backpacking & campground camping –

This spectacular mountain setting is quite different from the rest of the Sequoia National Park. Backpackers can arrive late and sleep at the walk-in camps of Cold Springs Campground.

Access to high elevation trailheads; alpine lakes and Golden Trout Wilderness Area. Day hikes, horseback rides, fishing, mountaineering routes are plentiful.

However, bears and marmots are a problem here. Store food in the steel bear boxes provided. Marmots will eat radiator hoses and chew wiring inside your vehicle. Bring a roll of chicken wire to wrap your automobile, if you plan to leave it unattended for any amount of time.

Additionally, evening ranger programs are presented in summer months.
