What do you do in Tuolumne County?
Although relatively small with 2,235 square miles, Tuolumne County is a region of great contrasts. In the west, pasturelands are at a modest 300 feet in elevation, but to the east the mountain terrain reaches for the sky, up to 9,628 feet at the Sonora Pass on Highway 108 and 9,941 feet at Tioga Pass on Highway 120 in Yosemite National Park. The Stanislaus National Forest, Yosemite National Park, and other surrounding areas provide incredible natural vistas and settings for hiking, water skiing, horseback riding, rafting, camping, snowmobiling, boating, snow skiing, fishing and other outdoor activities. But that is not all — man made attractions abound, as well. Seven restored historic hotels, six area golf courses, numerous gourmet restaurants, wineries, train rides, casino, five museums, two state historic sites, live theater and many charming bed-and-breakfasts are among the many other attributes that make the county a true year round vacation destination.
