Silver City began as a mining community in 1873, and you can still feel the energy and deep history as you walk around. Many of the privately-owned cabins in the area are still owned by descendants of the first miners, and Silver City retains the family feel of an intimate pioneering community. At Silver City, you will step into a timeless paradise, away from the hubbub of the city or the other parts of the park. You will be welcomed into our rich history and freed from the chaos and stress of the outside world.
Mineral King is one of the most beautiful places in the United States and one of the least well known. There are no paved trails here and no crowded hikes. You’ll be unlikely to see anyone for miles when hiking around the Mineral King mountains. What you will see is raw, natural beauty untainted by civilization.
Mineral King holds wonderful secrets for the intrepid adventurer: crystalline lakes, stunning views from the peaks, and gushing waterfalls. Those wishing for a more relaxing, rustic vacation can find beauty here too; Mineral King begins in a valley where you can take a lovely stroll through wildflowers and marvel at the snow-capped peaks all around you. Mineral King holds incredible experiences for everyone, yet the best part is that you can also be completely alone.
Silver City’s staff is great because we all love the mountains and the guests that come to the resort. Our employees fly out or road trip from all across the country to spend the summer hiking and working in the mountains. We’re a tight-knit family, and we’re so excited to welcome you into our community!
