Location & Transportation

Hiking in Oakhurst

Oakhurst is located at the intersection of Highway 41 (a major corridor to Yosemite) and Highway 49 (the southern end of the Golden Chain Highway). We are conveniently located just a few miles outside of the southern entrance to Yosemite.

Eastern Madera, North Fork to be exact, is the geographical center of California, which means it is convenient to get here from anywhere in the state. Once you’re here, you will find that transportation becomes part of the experience of discovering the Sierras. Why not try adding one or more of the following to your list?

• Horseback riding
• Rock climbing
• Cross-country skiing
• RVing
• Water skiing
• 4-wheeling
• Boating
• Jet-skiing

• Model T Fords (You can rent them for your trip into Yosemite.)
• Whitewater rafting
• Golf carts
• Motocross
• Hiking
• Biking
• Guided bus tours
• Snowmobiling
• And, of course, casual relaxing drives through some of the most scenic byways you can imagine
