With nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, amazing scenery, and plenty of easily accessible trails--Fresno County is full of fitness and hiking adventures.  Pincushion Mountain Peak beside Millerton Lake, is a moderate three-mile trail with a steeper incline toward the top. The view at the crest offers maximal gratification with inspiring views of the lake and the Sierra Nevada in the distance. The trail is especially enjoyable in the spring while wildflowers are in bloom, with a backdrop of vibrant green hills. Park at the South Finegold Day Use Area early in the morning for optimal parking and minimal people, but visit later in the day for evening views offering a spectacular show of the setting sun. 

For moderate to more advanced hiking challenges, there are endless trails to explore surrounding Shaver and Huntington Lake, as well as bucket-list-worthy trails in Kings Canyon National Park. Mentally and physically recharge with each glance at the giant sequoia trees, wide open meadows, glistening lakes, and wild rivers.
