Dies it bypass Long Barnes?

Long Barn was a wagon stop along the Sonora Pass during the 1800s gold rush era. Pioneer's traveling west would stop at "The Long Barn" where they could refresh supplies, food and rest. There is an apple orchard that was planted next to the Long Barn so that travelers could have fresh food, the apple orchard is still there. The Long Barn was torn down in the early 1970s.

The Long Barn Lodge was built in the 1920s, which included a restaurant, rooms, bar and entertainment for vacationers in the mountains. Heralded as the Four Seasons Resort along the area called Vacationland, the lodge grew to include a pool, horseback riding, ice skating, hiking and more.

The Long Barn Lodge burned down in 2002, with lack of insurance was not rebuilt. Rooms are available but where the historic lodge stood is just a patch of grass.
