The Big Pine Creek Trailhead provides access to some of the finest scenery in the Sierra. From spring through most of the summer, you will pass by beautiful wildflowers, several lakes, beautiful meadows, and spectacular views of Middle Palisade, Disappointment Peak, Mt.Agassiz, along with Mt Sill, Polemonium Peak, North Palisade, Starlight Peak, Thunderbolt Peak, and several others once the Palisade Glacier is attained.The Palisade group is the most alpine subrange in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is certainly a mecca for climbers, hikers and backpackers alike. Lake and Pond Fishing Willow, Brainerd and Elinor Lakes all have Brook Trout waiting for anglers to try their luck.
