Big Pine Trail to Danish Creek Camp: Los Padres Reservoir Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Big Pines Trail lies on the west side of the Los Padres Reservoir in a scenic mountain valley. Hikes 63 and 64 begin on the Carmel River Trail, curving around the dam and spillway along the western slope of the reservoir. While Hike 63 remains mostly level along the side of the reservoir, this hike switchbacks up to a ridge that overlooks the reservoir and surrounding wilderness area. A short spur trail drops into a small canyon at Danish Creek Camp near the confluence of Danish and Rattlesnake Creeks. Be aware of ticks, which are prevalent during the wet season."
