Map – Getting To Alpine County

Alpine County is located between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe in the California Sierra Nevada mountains. The county is divided into three specific areas (Bear Valley/Lake Alpine; Kirkwood/Hope Valley; and Markleeville/Woodfords) and these areas are connected by a network of high alpine highways.

The high-country segment of Highway 4 between Lake Alpine and Markleeville Highway 89 is closed during the winter months (approximately mid-November to May), but as confirmed by its new Federal Scenic Byway status, Highway 4 is one of the most beautiful mountain passes in the country in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Allow plenty of driving time between your destinations!
