Brainerd and Finger Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"Alpinists from all over the globe come to test their skills on the bevy of 13,000- to 14,000-foot peaks known as the Palisades. Splendid Sierra granite combined with dependably pleasant weather lure many mountaineers and technical climbers to the faces and ridges of these highly challenging and picturesque mountains. Hikers have the opportunity to enjoy the splendid alpine scenery of the Middle Palisades on the trail up South Fork Big Pine Creek to Brainerd Lake and then on a straightforward, offtrail route to Finger Lake and beyond. This is definitely a trip you’ll want to capture with your camera."
