Sifford Lake

Mineral, California

Sifford Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The cup of dark gray rock that cradles Sifford Lake is almost perfectly round. A smattering of evergreens shades its shoreline, but mostly the lake’s shores are open, and bathed in sunlight. The rock, dacite of (you guessed it) volcanic origin, warms up nicely in the summertime, and is spread around the lake in smooth, rolling mounds that, though rather hard, invite lounging. If the day is exceptionally warm, the rocks and the sun conspire to make taking a dip in the clear, shallow waters a tempting possibility. Highlights: The small lake at trail’s end sits on a picturesque rocky bench."
