Oakhurst Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 62 photos

About an hour away from Yosemite National Park, and 45 minutes from the city of Fresno, Oakhurst is a Sierra Foothill gem with a unique character. Once the base for Software Gaming companies like Sierra Online, you find a mecca of artists and eccentrics as well as your mountain folk and business entrepreneurs.

The natural landscape is one of rolling foothills that meet the granite feet of the Sierras. Hiking trails, mountain lakes and waterfalls abound in the lands surrounding the town. For the person who doesn't want the tourism and traffic of Yosemite Valley, the town of Oakhurst is a wonderful escape.

Photos and more to come!
