Relax at Sand Pond

Sierra City, California

Added by Andy

A small pond with great mountain views.

Sand Pond is a great place to relax after a day of hiking or paddling. It's located between Sardine Lake Campground and Lower Sardine Lake and is an easy 10 min walk from the campground. Sand Pond has beautiful views of the mountains and is a great place to watch the sunset. There are small fish swimming in the pond, however more fish can be found in Lower Sardine Lake. There is a trail that leads from the campground to Sand Pond.

Relax at Sand Pond Reviews

Always a wonderful place to soak your weary bones. We always cool off here after hiking this section of the PCT. PCT Through hikers: if you are not aware of this place, check it out! It is not too far off trail for a cool off stop and camping. Use the Tamarack Connection Trail to connect with the Sardine Lake Campground and Sand Pond.
