Tuolumne County: 3 Vacations in 1 Incredible California Destination That Will Unite Your Adventurous and Pioneer Spirits
Tuolumne County is your place for Yosemite explorations, High Sierra adventures and Gold Country discoveries during a California vacation. Just 2 ½ hours east of the San Francisco Bay Area, this is where outdoor adventure meets Gold Rush history. Tuolumne County is easily accessible year-round for all-season fun and adventure with endless outdoor recreation, sightseeing and more.
Explore Highway 120 and Yosemite
Catch your breath in the fresh mountain air, and embrace the beauty of the least crowded half of Yosemite National Park. Hike around the Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias, Tuolumne Meadows and Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. For more adventure, camp, hike, whitewater raft, swim, horseback ride and bike on the adjacent Stanislaus National Forest.
Experience the High Sierra and Scenic Highway 108
Uplift your outdoor spirit in the High Country while hiking, biking, backpacking or horseback riding on hundreds of miles of wilderness trails on the expansive Stanislaus National Forest. Dive in, cast a line, or launch your boat on pristine mountain lakes, rivers and streams or pitch a tent or park your RV under a blanket of stars that’s out of this world.
Discover Gold Country
There’s more to the Gold Country than historical prospects. Fish, boat, camp, and swim at gorgeous Sierra Foothill reservoirs and hike or bike on countless miles of scenic trails. But if your pioneer spirit tempts you to get immersed in Gold Rush history, visit Tuolumne County’s historic towns, which are alive with authentic vibes of a bygone era. Don’t miss Railtown 1897 and Columbia State Historic Parks for authentic steam train rides, stagecoach rides, gold panning and more.
