This property is located in the beautiful California Pines community, which is surrounded by 2 million acres of the Modoc National Forest in Northern California. This area is known for its beautiful forest of pine, cedar and juniper trees. Three fishing ponds are nestled in among the trees and are stocked by the State Department of Fish and Wildlife. Seasonal streams and a variety of springs also dot the hillside. Property owners will have unlimited use of all campgrounds, fishing ponds and recreational facilities in the California Pines subdivision.
“The Smiles of Gods” is what the Native Americans, who first settled this land, called it. The forest is named for the county in which the greater part of the forest is situated. The county, in turn, is named after the Native American tribe, the Modocs.
The topography is diverse, ranging from the forested Warner Mountain range in the east, to the high plateaus dominated by sage steppe and ancient lava flows around Alturas, and culminating at the Medicine Highlands (the largest shield volcano in North America) in the west. The high desert climate in the valley areas consists of four distinct seasons and an average precipitation of 13 inches, a large part of which comes in the form of snow during the winter months of December to March. Elevation levels in the Modoc range from 9,906 feet at Eagle Peak in the South Warner Wilderness, to 4,000 feet in the valleys.
There are ample opportunities for hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing. The Modoc is home of more than 300 species of wildlife. The Pacific Flyway crosses directly over the area. During their migration from Alaska and Canada to Mexico, hundreds of thousands of waterfowl use local wetlands as rest stops. Rocky Mountain elk, wild horses, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope are some of the large, unique mammals that call the Modoc their home.
The Modoc's remote location ensures recreational visitors a quiet, peaceful experience away from the crowded trails and campgrounds of the Sierra Nevada forests. A backpacker can go days or weeks without seeing another human while visiting the South Warner Wilderness. Views from the Summit Trail in the wilderness extend from the snow-capped peaks of the northern Sierra Nevadas and Cascades, to the Black Rock Desert in northwestern Nevada. Auto tours and scenic byways also offer great scenery for those less adventuresome.
