Sequoia National Park’s namesake giant redwoods are some of California’s oldest and most graceful natural treasures. Plan your itinerary by visiting the Park Service’s website for Sequoia and adjoining Kings Canyon National Park, which together comprise 865,952 acres.

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

General Sherman Tree

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

Wuksachi Lodge

The stone-and-cedar lodge, set 7,200 feet above sea level, is Sequoia’s best rustic hideaway. Built in 1999, the 102 rooms are a bit cookie-cutter but sport vaguely Mission-style furnishings and cushy beds.
