my "ode year" in 2007, I visited Picayune Lake at 6100' elevation in
the extreme northeast corner of Trinity County. I was recently advised
(2014) that the lake and the entire forest block [section 23 on USFS
map] is privately owned and not open to the public. According, I have
withdrawn directions and details related to this site. Observers should
check other alpine lakes in Trinity County at this elevation that are
on public lands. Species such as Mountain Emerald may be seen, often in flight, over such lakes (below).
