Journey | Sample
Hidden well above Fresno deep in the Sierra National Forest,
in between Yosemite & Kings Canyon, is the area of Lakeshore,
also known as Huntington
Lake. Secluded, remote & largely undeveloped wilderness
offers much to the sport of cross country skiing or snow-mobiling.
With over 100 miles of groomed backcountry triails, it easy to
get away from it all.
Rancheria Enterprises is a small walk from Lakeshore Resort & rents snowmobiles
by the day or half day. Most machines are tandem so you can rides
2 & split the cost with a pal. (Maximum weight per machine 300lbs.)
Lake Huntington, CA

100+ miles of groomed trails and tell em Total Escape sent ya!
Moderate driving distance from Bay Area or Los Angeles & fairly easy to get to, depending on weather (of course). Saloon and mountaiin dinner resaurant at the old lodge, newer lake view condos up on the hill and Sierra Summit Ski Resort. Not bad for the middle of nowhere in the Sierras.

Sierra Travel Options:
Drive partially (at night) and stay overnight in Visalia or one of many other country towns that dot the rolling hills of the Sierra Nevada foothills.
On the return trip, make sure to take a slight detour on to Tollhouse Road which runs parallell to Hwy. 168 and rejoins it on the way back down the mountain. Spectacular rolling hills with meadows full of wildflowers and oak trees in mid to late Spring.
