Gerber Reservoir: North Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Tucked among the ponderosa pines and scraggly junipers is this popular BLM campground on the western shore of Gerber Reservoir, which was created to provide irrigation. Sites near the water are more closely spaced. You may see waterfowl, bald eagles, and ospreys. The potholes northwest of the reservoir attract other birds, including sandhill cranes. Bass, crappie, catfish, and perch are among the game fish here, and the lake is popular with boaters. During World War II, the US military used an island in this reservoir for bombing practice. Today ospreys and pelicans are the only bombers of Gerber Reservoir. Gerber Potholes Trail is a 12-mile hiker/horse loop."
