This property is in the Giant Sequoia National Monument within Sequoia Forest. It offers the natural beauty as is found in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, but without the cars and crowds. The Parks are not a reasonable day-visitation distance away since they are approximate 50 miles further north than Springville, the entry into Sequoia National Monument. Just 2.5 miles from the cabin, is the trailhead for Freeman Creek/Grove, where visitors encounter the first of 800+ Sequoia trees within the first mile of downhill hiking. Other groves are also nearby, along with a climber's and star gazer's paradise Dome Rock, and a climb up nearby Slate Mountain to see rare local wildflowers.
About the owner: Former Sierra Club Mountaineering and Rock climbing instructor; frequent visitor and admirer of National Parks and Recreation Areas, drawn to this 'Ponderosa' region in 1980 for its natural beauty and diversity of natural attractions.
Why the Owner Chose Ponderosa, CA, USA:
See nearby Giant Sequoia trees that are more than 2000 years old and of breath-taking dimension. Visit nearby streams, mountain rivers for fishing, hiking and/or pure scenic pleasure. Visit nearby Vistas of Dome Rock and The Needles, which offer views that are second-to-none. Slate Mtn is immediately accessible and has some of the most beautiful and rare wildflowers for those venturing up this 9,000ft summit. The cabin is top-notch for special Visitors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fill your day with natural beauty and activities if you like, and come back to peacefully rest and soak in the quiet retreat-like property, perched on a high point facing south into forest and Slate Mountain. Soak up the comfort of the property and immediate surroundings, and/or venture out to nature's nearby attractions.
