10 Hidden Gems in California You May Have Never Heard Of

9. Donnell Vista

This spot gives visitors views of Niagara Creek Falls, Donnell Lake and the Dardanelles, and can be found in Tuolumne County in Northern California. When it comes to beautiful hidden gems, this is a real whopper. Why, you ask?

Well, because the entire area is comprised of lava flow that flowed down the river canyon, but began at the top of Sonora Pass long ago. So long ago, in fact, that some believe we’re talking about pre-Ice Age times. How about that, folks?
