How to get there
Airport: Stockton: 46.6 mi
The Central Sierra town of Dorrington and the Big Trees Village neighborhood is located at about 5,000 feet elevation along Highway 4. It is a 2-3 hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, about 1.5 hours from the Stockton Airport, and about 2 hours by car away from Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park.

GPS or Navigator systems also sometime refer to the Dorrington area as 'Arnold' or 'Camp Connell' because these nearby towns all share the same zip code.

Five minutes past the entrance to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, turn right onto Boards Crossing (at the Dorrington Hotel), climb about 1/2 mile then thrun Right at Kenshaw Court and immediately Right again onto Kenshaw Way. The cabin will be at the deadend on the right.
