lodginglodging reservations in Dardanelle

CA Highway 108: If there is an image that says it all, this bad ass snow tractor vehicle can tell you just how much it really snows here - way, way back here in the granite alpine depths of the high elevation Sierra Nevada, Sonora Pass. An uncrowded alpine wilderness wonderland await you. This is very rugged (unforgiving) country, so travel well prepared... vehicle, as well as your own body. Dardanelle CA has a few Cabin Rentals, a general store, cafe & maybe gasoline (if you are lucky).

    Small mountain community in the mid Sierra Nevada. Alpine & granite bliss... if the Hwy. 108 / Sonora Pass is open. This is usually the first mountain pass to close due for winter & the last one to open due to heavy snow pack. It is rugged country, and most of the year it is inaccessible. And depending on weather systems, you best come prepared way out here. No joke! That's why Dardanelle exist!

    The small market has a backpackers bulletin board out in front, for anyone & everyone needing it. Unfortunately there's plenty missing hiker reports posted, so we are not kidding about how challenging the region is.
