Located on the edge of Stanislaus National Forest, Arnold is Northern California wilderness at its best. A three-hour drive from San Francisco, the town is the perfect place to launch a long weekend getaway from the Bay Area.
The main attraction in Arnold is Calaveras Big Trees State Park, where as the name suggests, you'll likely see some of the biggest trees you will ever come across. The Sierra Nevada Logging Museum is an excellent option if you're interested in the area's history. And of course, there are plenty of excellent hiking trails in the area to keep you busy.
The best time to visit is in the late spring and early fall. Be sure to check wildfire alerts before heading out.

— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— The great thing about AllTheRooms is their ability to cover all bases. If you are travelling solo, with a partner, friends or even a larger family. There is something there for everyone and that is a hugely powerful tool that I believe it boasts moreso than competitors.
— AllTheRooms.com makes travel easier, enjoyable and inexpensive through its provision of ample information, data and every possible accommodation available to choose from
