The Inaja Memorial Picnic area was established to memorialize the 11 firefighters who lost their lives battling the 60,000-acre Inaja Fire in 1956. With an elevation of 3440, the higher altitude offers year round cooler temperatures, and great views of surrounding mountain ranges. Besides the beautiful mountain scenery, this site offers a quiet tranquil setting that creates a great environment for afternoon family picnics, with connecting trails, interactive site seeing activities and scenic areas. For more information on the Inaja and connecting trails, please see our Inaja Trail Recreation page. For a more detailed look at this trail, read our Spotlight: Inaja Trail
