The old Pioneer Cemetery for the town of Forest, CA is on federally owned land within the Tahoe National Forest. It is just outside of town in a protected area adjacent to recent logging activity. It is difficult to locate, and difficult to explain how to find it. I'd advise having a local resident give directions and/or guide you to it's location. From what I've been told by a local whom I work with, there are many more graves in this cemetery than there are markers for. But as is common with most rural old pioneer cemeteries, many of the residents were poor and could not afford more than a homemade wooden marker, which has long since disintegrated over time.
