About Hume Lake
Hume Lake is a reservoir in the Sierra Nevada, within Sequoia National Forest and Fresno County, central California. Hume Lake is a year-round recreation destination. During warmer months, visitors can enjoy fishing, non-motorized boating, hiking and mountain biking. During the winter, the area is popular for snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. It once supplied water to the longest lumber flume transporting logs to the Central Valley. The elevation is 5,250 feet. Sequoia National Forest, located at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada in central California, is named for the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves on the forest's lower slopes. The forest comprises about 1.1 million acres. Elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls such as Salmon Creek Falls and Grizzly Falls.
