Part 1; the history of Sky Harbour Road
The South Finegold Picnic Area is part of the Millerton Lake State Recreation Area. The Millerton Lake State Recreation Area was formed as part of the completion of Friant Dam during 1944 along the San Joaquin River. Millerton Lake flooded over the original Fresno County seat of Millerton but opened up numerous recreational opportunities.
The Finegold Jeep Trail first appears on the 1965 United States Geological Survey Map of Millerton Lake and 1964 United States Geological Survey Map of Friant. The Finegold Jeep Trail originated at Table Mountain Rancheria at Millerton Road and connected the trailheads for the San Joaquin River Trail and Pincushion Peak Trail.
