Description: Several years ago, Bill Bryant led a SOCALM run to Three Rivers. We spent a relaxing weekend exploring Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Bill spoke often of repeating this run but he was not able to before he passed away last year. So this September we will honor Bill on the first day of our 4 day adventure through Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks.
At 9:30am on Thursday we will gather at Denny's in Canyon Country, head to Tehachapi for lunch, then meander through the foothills to spend the night in Three Rivers. Friday we will visit the Big Trees in Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP, then continue on to Oakhurst, where we will lodge Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday will be a day of choices – I will have local runs to choose from or you can explore Yosemite on your own. If you have never been to Yosemite, I highly recommend taking one of the guided tour buses. On Sunday, we will go into Yosemite as a group, travel over Tioga Pass and head home via Hwy 395.
Since September is the end of the peak season, we will not be having a group hotel booking. Everyone will be on their own to find a hotel to fit their own taste and pocketbook. Oakhurst has more hotels than I could possibly list here. Three Rivers has been hit hard by the economy and there are not as many hotels as in years past. There is a list of available accommodations on the Chamber of Commerce website at www.threerivers.com.
After driving through town, the ones that look the most promising to me are Comfort Inn & Suites (800-331-2140), Sierra Lodge (888-575-2555), Gateway Restaurant & Lodge (559-561-4133) and Buckeye Tree Lodge (559-561-5900). I have listed the hotels in west to east order and I am not endorsing anyone of them since I have not stayed in any of them.
We will be on channel 10 (CB's) incase you can't make it till Friday or Saturday to join us, just give us a call.
