About the Site

This Park is jointly operated with Kings Canyon National Park, its neighbor to the immediate north. Together these Parks protect the massive and beautiful Sequoia redwoods, including the famous General Sherman Tree, the largest living tree in the world. Elevations range from 1500 feet to over 14,000 feet, so you're going to see a wide variety of plant and animal life.

What You're Going to See

Huge trees, Mineral King Valley, and Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states. Not bad, huh?

Personal Observations

Someday soon I'll be there, just you see!

Getting There

From Visalia in California, travel east on Highway 198. It takes you directly into the park. Continue north to Highway 180 and visit Kings Canyon National Park as well.

Nearby Attractions

Not too far to the northwest lie Devils Postpile National Monument, and just beyond that is Yosemite National Park. On the border of Sequoia you'll find Kings Canyon National Park and Giant Sequoia National Monument. To the east is Manzanar National Historic Site, and then Death Valley National Park.
