As per your rules for font identification, I've followed the requirements for font-identification.

Here are the find-a-font site I've tried.

  • WhatTheFont! (Attempted)
  • Identifont (Attempted)
  • Serif Font Identification Guide (Not a Serif Font)
  • What Font is (Attempted)
  • Fontspring Matcherator (Attempted)
  • Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5+ Font Match (Attempted)
  • FindMyFont (Attempted)

Where the font is from

The font is used on an information sign from Calaveras Big Trees California State Park. Here is an image along with cropped variations that I used on the identification sites.

Other helpful information

There is a possibility that it is hand-drawn, but from my analysis, it looks very consistent. Also, I would expect the State Park service to have a scalable way to produce signage.

Here are the resources I've searched through during my google-searches:

  • Wikipedia entry: List of public signage typefaces
  • CA State Park Brand Style Handbook Jan '07

Note: I would have posted the links, but I don't have enough reputation.

Calaveras Information Sign

Thank you very much for your help.

    That is almost certainly a hand-painted sign, so you won't find that "font" anywhere. You could look for fonts that look like sign painter lettering, that might get you close-ish.

I agree with the others here that this looks like a hand painted sign. The letters forms are not exactly regular.

Anyhoo, FontSquirrel's Matcherator suggests a few fonts that are similar including New Era Casual Regular which is pretty close, and free.

That looks hand-painted. I don't think you will have any luck finding that exact font, but there is some hope of you finding a similar font.

I would suggest searching for Brush or Handwritten fonts

I searched on Google Fonts and think that this one is pretty close:
