High Sierra

4.7
Adventure awaits in High Sierra, the land of dramatic landscapes and wild beauty. Dubbed "California's backbone,” the region stretches along the state's eastern boundary, crossing lofty ridges, giant sequoia woods, wildflower meadows, rivers, waterfalls, and sparkling lakes. It provides the perfect getaway within a day's drive of either L.A. or San Francisco. World-class mountain resorts at Mammoth Lakes cater to all visitors regardless of tastes and budget. Trails in Sequoia National Park and Yosemite Valley offer some of the world's best hikes topped with awe-inspiring vistas. Whether you prefer to hike a mountain, ski the slopes, or boat on a turquoise-blue lake, you'll find High Sierra attractions quite fascinating.
