town.sequoia national park

The biggest trees on earth live here inside Sequoia National Park. This impressive Sierra forest is home to the General Sherman Tree, the Giant Forest, Crystal Cave, & Mineral King Canyon. The Sequoia parks eastern boundary borders the Inyo National Forest & the John Muir Wilderness trails. Both Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks are perfect for backpackers seeking access the Sierra high country.

RV warning: If you have a vehicle and/or trailers longer than 22 feet, you will not be able to drive portions of Hwy 198 (General Sherman Tree/Giant Forest, Moro Rock, Crystal Cave, or Lodgepole/Wuksachi Lodge). The highway is way too winding to drive in from the south. Large motorhomes, fifth wheel campers and truck campers/trailers in tow should plan to enter/exit the parks ONLY THRU Hwy. 180, inside Kings Canyon NP

  • description:
    Open all year long, this place looks incredible under a blanket of snow. The majestic giants stand tall in a winter wonderland scenery. Roads to Cedar Grove inside Kings Cyn NP & the Mineral King Road are both closed in winter months (NOV-APR). Hwy 198 - the General's Highway is open but brief closures may occur during winter storms for snow plowing. As to be expected holiday weekends in the summer are very crowded. Visit off-peak time to enjoy more nature & less people. Camp in between the parks on Sequoia National Forest's Big Meadow Road.
