Other Names

Sierra National Forest, Bass Lake Ranger District, Crowsfoot, Crow Peak, Devil Peak

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Sequoia National Forest offers miles of old logging and fire roads to explore. The terrain is moderately challenging making this a good place to bring the quads or UTVs.

Camping with direct trail access can be found at the Jerseydale Campground, which has 10 sites, each with a picnic table and BBQ grill. There is no fee charged for camping but sites are on a first come, first service basis. Amenities include a vault toilet and potable water.
