Sequoia National Park, California: Gigantic, Old-Growth Trees amid Sierra Nevada Mountains
Sequoia National Park covers more than 400,000 acres, a wonderland of waterfalls, underground caverns, and forests. It stretches wide, but its vertical reach is just as impressive—it’s set up high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and its famed sequoia trees grow up to 25 stories high. The largest, the General Sherman, stands at 270 feet and its base is more than 100 feet in circumference. You can follow an exhilarating hiking trail to see the General Sherman and other behemoth trees that date back thousands of years. In spring and summer, the winding trails are blanketed with pennyroyals, columbines, and other wildflowers.
Aside from hiking, the park is popular for rock climbing, horseback riding, and fishing. Anglers can head down to Hume Lake, Kings River, or one of the park’s many creeks to go fly fishing for trout. In winter, people trade their hiking boots for cross-country skis and snowshoes, as snowfall covers the park’s trails. Tobogganing is also a popular pastime during snowy weather.
