Visiting California's High Sierras

An idyllic example of the Great Outdoors, California’s High Sierras region is a popular destination for outdoor adventurers year round. Still, this season, from Sonora and Angels Camp to Truckee and South Lake Tahoe, there are more special events, festivals, and family-friendly activities than ever.

Don’t miss the chance to bask in the beauty of a bevy of spring blossoms in Ridgecrest, in the eastern Sierras. A colorful array of flowers began to bloom in February and continue through the end of April, when flower fanatics gather at the south end of Naval Air Warfare Center–China Lake for the 2016 Ridgecrest Flower Festival.

While you’re in the Ridgecrest area, take the opportunity to explore Randsburg, to the immediate south. The ghost of a once-booming mining town, Randsburg is a nearly untainted time capsule of a bygone era. Check out the Randsburg Opera House, the White Horse Saloon, or get a sarsaparilla from the soda fountain at the General Store.

Runners are already training for the 2016 Wild Wild West Marathon and 50K in Lone Pine. And on Saturday, May 7th, they'll gather and choose between the 50K, the 26.2-mile marathon, or a variety of shorter runs along scenic courses.

The communities of Porterville and Exeter, on the west of the Sierra Nevada, are poised to serve as launch pads for your spring or summer adventure in Sequoia National Park. Locals suggest visitors take advantage of springtime’s smaller crowds to enjoy hiking and mountain biking, in cooler weather.
