Owner description: Stanislaus National Forest, created on February 22, 1897, is among the oldest of the national forests. You can fish in over 800 miles of rivers and streams, stay in a campground, or hike. The Calaveras Big Trees State Park is also here.

Such a big big forest... so many places to see, campgrounds, snowmobiles inthe winter, horses in the summer. Mountain Passes, logging roads in the middle of nowhere. And its all in California. May as well be in Montana or Colorado! No, this is better.

There is a wild river that remains in these parts...the Staislaus has three forks but the one I know can be reached by descending from the neighborhood after the Calaveras Big Tree park...ask the locals and be aware of the rules and wild life.

One of the clearest and beautiful when you hike in about a mile...

This is not a bit different but SO much less crowded than Yosemite. It is very cool on the mountain during the summer and trees and scenery are awesome. Not to be missed! If you are still for a bit you will see some animals, mostly deer...the bear are usually shy and so are many of the other little animals. Tons of things to see.
