    They say that the geographic center of the state of California is located between North Fork and Italian Bar. A historic lumber mill town, Northfork CA is near to lakes, rivers, streams, & forests. Sierra Scenic Byway - a great, almost totally paved, loop route passes Mammoth Pool, meadows and access to Granite Creek. Much wildlife, drive cautiously.
