Huntington Lake Travel Tips
Huntington Lake Vacation Rentals Place You on the Water
Huntington Lake is one of the best sailing lakes in California. Surrounded on three sides by mountains with dams edging the fourth side, a thermal effect is created that sustains westerly winds that average fifteen miles per hour—an ideal sailing pace. Launch your boat from several marinas on the lake and spend the day sunbathing on your deck. You can also rent a kayak or canoe and coast over placid waters. Of course, swimming, waterskiing, and jet skiing are also available.
Huntington Lake Is Not Just for Sailing
Bring a fishing pole and reel in a rainbow trout, Kokanne salmon, or a German brown to take home and grill up in your Huntington Lake vacation rental. Hike the lake basin and watch the streams that feed the lake flow with winter runoff. Watch for the first signs of the red spiky Snow Flower popping out of the ground to signal spring, and then head up the wilderness trails that climb the hillsides to granite summits. Bring a set of binoculars if you’re into bird watching, as there are plenty of birds to watch around the lake, especially when the weather starts to warm in the spring.
Winter in Huntington Lake Is Still Spectacular
Sierra Summit Mountain Resort offers great powdered slopes for skiers and snowboarders. At 7,030 feet, this summit is a peak to reckon with! Runs vary in difficulty and lessons are offered, so bring the whole family up for some snowy fun. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are often just a step out the door of Gold Country High Sierra cabins, so you can breathe in the fresh pines and clean mountain air all the way to your rental home. With Huntington Lake lodging so close to nature, you’ll forget your busy city life within a few minutes of arriving.
