Sequoia National Park

Sequoia National Park Travel Guide

This easy one-mile loop in Sequoia National Park begins at the Giant Forest Museum and takes about one hour to walk. It’s also handicap-accessible.

The outfitters offer an all-day ride to the top of Mitchell Peak (elevation 10,365 feet) for experienced riders; shorter rides and multiday pack trips are also available. $185 per person

This park’s namesake giant redwoods are some of California’s oldest and most graceful natural treasures. Sequoia and adjoining Kings Canyon National Park together comprise 865,952 acres. Two-thirds of the property is roadless roadless—so it makes sense to explore on horseback.

Be sure to stop by the ecology exhibits at this intimate museum dedicated to amazing trees.

The world’s largest living tree is estimated to be 2,100 years old.
