Big Pine Trail to Danish Creek Camp Professional Review and Guide
"The Big Pine Trail lies on the west side of the Los Padres Reservoir in a scenic mountain valley. Hikes 77 and 78 begin on the Carmel River Trail, curving around the dam and spillway along the west- ern slope of the reservoir. While Hike 77 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 Camp near the confluence of Danish and Rattlesnake Creeks. Be aware of ticks, which are prevalent during the wet season."
