Brainerd Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Alpinists from across the globe are drawn to the beauty and challenge of the bevy of 14,000-foot peaks known as the Palisades. Less-adventurous recreationists can enjoy the splendid alpine scenery found in the Middle Palisades on this journey up the canyon of South Fork Big Pine Creek to Brainerd Lake and the off-trail backcountry beyond. Although the terrain is heavenly, parts of the ascent may seem to have less divine origins."
--Mike White, Top Trails Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks: 64 Must-do Hikes for Everyone (Wilderness Press).
