Long Barn, California: Outdoor Fun in the Sierra Nevada
The small town of Long Barn, California, is located within the Stanislaus National Forest in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The area is rife with outdoor activity no matter the season, but it’s particularly vibrant during the summer months. At nearby Pinecrest Lake, you can fish, hike, swim, and go boating. With hundreds of miles of dirt trails and four mountain passes, Long Barn is also a popular destination for on- and off-road motorcycle riding.
About a 35-minute drive away is Columbia, a gold-rush-era ghost town that's now a living-history spectacle. Columbia is full of activities you won't find in most small towns: you can pan for gold, take a ride in a stagecoach, see a blacksmith at work, or make your own candles. When it's time to recharge, grab a beer or locally made sarsaparilla at a 150-year-old saloon.
Less than 90 miles south of Long Barn lies the entrance to Yosemite National Park, which welcomes millions of visitors each year. Yosemite Falls—a three-tiered waterfall that’s considered North America’s highest—transforms into thundering cataracts each spring. Serious hikers can trek to the top on the strenuous Upper Yosemite Fall trail, which gains 2,700 feet in elevation in just 3.5 miles.
