Parsnip Allotment, Modoc National Forest, is located in the South Warner Mountains
in the far northeastern part of Lassen County. The nearest town is Likely, California
which is about fifteen miles to the northwest. The MNF has a great camp ground at
nearby Blue Lake.
Parsnip Allotment is one of those rare places on the MNF where livestock have not
been present in any great numbers for the last ten years or so. Wildflowers and native
grasses abound among the mix of juniper and pine with some of the most striking old
growth juniper we have seen on the MNF.
Parsnip Allotment is within the inventoried Parsnip Roadless Area of the MNF. Elevation
for the area we walked through ranged from 5600 feet up to about 6000 feet.
