Situated on the Gold Rush highway that winds through former mining towns, Oakhurst is the gateway to America's most popular national park for travelers.
You've now added El Capitan to your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Devils Postpile National Monument and Zipline. When in Oakhurst, make a side trip to see Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes, approximately 1:15 hours away. It doesn't end there: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.
