Trabucco Trails is conveniently located near Yosemite in California’s Gold Country, on a historic parcel near the Mariposa County community of Bear Valley, on a quiet, rural stretch of Highway 49.
During the Gold Rush days, the parcel was once cultivated as a vegetable garden, while Forty-Niners discovered gold in the area. The historic rock walls on property mark the perimeter where the garden once grew.
The joy of discovery continues here today. Now you can discover the vast riches our universe has to offer. Trabucco Trails, located on 17 privately owned acres, provides you with a grand opportunity to stargaze using high-end, easy-to-use instruments. A robotic GO-TO telescope is provided during your stay, and is included in the rental cost. This open, rural stretch of Highway 49, which is considered ‘above the fog and below the snow’, provides you with many clear night opportunities, even in winter
