The carved head is located at: 32216 CA-198, Lemon Cove, California.

[Pam Panzerthecat4, 08/28/2020]

Naturalist John Muir is one of the more interesting targets in 2020's historical reckonings. Though for years his "Father of the National Parks" legacy had mostly outweighed his shortcomings, in 2020 the Sierra Club condemned the early racist views of their founder. TBD whether Muir parks are renamed and statues removed.

The Large Head of John Muir has been moved to the SW corner of 198 & 99. Almost inaccessible at this time, though visible. Must be approached via 198 eastbound and take exit before 99 - ride access road. Located next to the Wood Industries Company.
