About the neighbourhood
Big Trees State Park, Arnold restaurants, and Bear Valley Ski Resort nearby. 10 minutes to Fishing in Stanislaus River. 20 minutes to Historic Murphys. Two hours to Yosemite Valley. The 3-bedroom, 2.5-Bath home is located on a level lot at the heart of a scenic Sierra mountains wonderland. Large pine and cedar trees provide cool shade in summertime while big winter storms can dump huge amounts of fluffy snow. Nearby attractions include: The Big Trees Recreation Center (less than 5 mins.), fishing and water play in the Stanislaus River (10 mins.), Calaveras Big Trees State Park, Goldrush-era Murphys, 3 fabulous Caves to explore, Lake Alpine, Bear Valley Apline and Cross-country skiing, and Yosemite National Park just 2 hours away.
How to get there
The Central Sierra town of Dorrington and the Big Trees Village neighborhood is located at about 5,000 feet elevation along Highway 4. It is a 2-3 hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, about 1.5 hours from the Stockton Airport, and about 2 hours by car away from Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park. GPS or Navigator systems also sometime refer to the Dorrington area as 'Arnold' or 'Camp Connell' because these nearby towns all share the same zip code. Five minutes past the entrance to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, turn right onto Boards Crossing (at the Dorrington Hotel), climb about 1/2 mile then thrun Right at Kenshaw Court and immediately Right again onto Kenshaw Way. The cabin will be at the deadend on the right.
