Silver City Mountain Resort (Mineral Kings), CA - famous homemade pies

We went to Silver City & checked out the Store/Restaurant out on Thurs 9/1/11. It's in the Mineral King area of Sequoia NP after driving almost 90 minutes on windy, roads.

Friend told me about homemade pie & I had to try it. It's $5/slice for their homemade pie. V. wanted the pie w/ rhubarb in it & other fruit called "Fruit of the Forest". It was tasty enough. I saw 4 other pies & they all sounded great: Razzle Dazzle, Nectarine-Berry, Apple, & Chocolate Walnut!

They serve other food too.

Small store part attached that you can buy some needed supplies. Emergency poncho $3 I should have bought for a future trip, but didn't. They have postcards of hikes in the Mineral King - didn't buy either.

Shower is $5 for 4 minutes. Yikes! Didn't use it.

  1. wow! this takes me the 70's when we lived in 3 Rivers and drove to MK for the pie and the cool summer air!

    also later in life I had the privelege to meet Bart Ross, who ran the MK pack station back in the 30's and 40's. His wife made pies for the Silver City store then--summer only.
