Things To Do On the Pass in August!

Planning your weekend or a visit to the area?  Keep an eye on the VisitMurphys, GoCalaveras, CalaverasWines, & Alpine County calendars.  Are you hosting an event in the area and wondering why you don’t see it included here?  It’s probably because we don’t know about it.  Please send us an email with all the particulars.  Our monthly posts continue to be updated throughout the month, and past events are removed so you won’t have to scroll forever, so check back regularly!

And, of course, the Ebbetts Pass area is a great place to take a hike, paddle, go for a bike ride, do a little climbing, hang out someplace with a view or just take a hike and wear the dog out.  Don’t forget to support the businesses along the way. Businesses like the Sierra Nevada Adventure Company (Murphys & Arnold), Bear Valley Adventure Company, Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods (Arnold), Bear Valley Bicycles (Arnold), Mountain Aloha (Avery), Lake Alpine Lodge (Lake Alpine), The Trout Spot (Arnold), and The Markleeville General Store can all help you with supplies and expert information.

We’ll be updating this list throughout the month so check back regularly for all the latest.
