Pinecrest Lake – A Cool Alternative
When the valley heats up – with temperatures hitting the upper 90-degree mark – mountain lakes, such as Pinecrest Lake, east of Sonora near Dodge Ridge off Highway 108, offer cooling alternatives.
Many forms of outdoor recreation are offered at the mountain-area lake, including boating, swimming, bike riding, hiking, sunbathing, or a picnic under the pines.
The weekend weather outlook is sunny and warm, with high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90´s all weekend. Nighttime lows are expected in the 60´s.
