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

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.
