Think of the Golden Gate Bridge as a portal to the Bay Area's cultural gold mine, whether it's wandering San Francisco's famous wharf, strolling misty beaches, perusing museums or fine dining that you consider the mother lode.
This small station houses some exhibits on Mineral King's human & natural history. When the station is not open,

Not on the Generals Highway, but on the Mineral King Road, 24 miles up this narrow, winding road from Highway 198 in Three Rivers (no RVs, buses, or trailers, please). The road closes from October 31 to late May.
We offer a compact version of Go-California for mobile users, allowing you to access just the information you need on the road. Of course, you can still use the full version of Go-California on your mobile device just as you can on your desktop.
