Sand Pond is 15 driving minutes from Sierra City and 1600 feet above town straight north. It's the lowest & smallest in a line of lakes that include Lower Sardine, Upper Sardine, and Young America. This is a great (and popular) swimming lake; it's calm, shallow (no deeper than 15 feet) and warm, and almost anyone can swim all the way across. Teeming with campers and picknickers in summer. Above an awesome photo of Sand Pond taken from the other end, facing the Sierra Buttes. You can tell by the reflection how tranquil Sand Pond is. Highest point on the Buttes is about 8,700 feet. From the top, you can see 100 miles every direction, all the way to Mount Shasta, partially hidden by the curvature of the earth.
