Location

Walking distance to Big Trees State Park, hiking and cross country ski trails. Towns of Murphys and Arnold are down the road with many activities.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our family enjoys cross country skiing, swimming and hiking. We are a teacher and musician.

Why the Owner Chose Arnold, CA, USA:
Dorrington is nestled in the trees. Driving from the Bay Area is a breeze. It is not crowded (like Tahoe) and the elevation at 5000 feet has just the right amount of snow and perfect temperatures year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love to cross-country ski and snowshoe in the winter. We can walk or ski right into Calaveras Big Trees State Park via a fire road just up the street. Big Trees State park has miles of trails to explore. In the summer we love to picnic and hike at the Stanislas River. There are many hiking trails near Bear Valley. We also kayak on Alpine lake and swim or fish in Arnold at White Pines Lake. The Dorrington area is very quiet. Our children love the caverns in Murphy's. Murphy's also has excellent restaurants and wine tasting events.
