Gateway to "downtown" Twain Harte

Twain Harte, CA has been a mountain destination getaway for more than 100 years. It’s located 9 miles east of Sonora, CA and 100 miles south of Sacramento. In addition to it’s charming “downtown”, Twain Harte is home to  numerous restaurants, shops and community events. A guide is available from the Twain Harte Area Chamber of Commerce.
