Sequoia National Park’s Giant Forest, which can be explored by trail, houses five of the 10 largest trees on Earth. America’s second national park was established in 1890 to protect the giant trees from logging. The picturesque park, which is adjacent to Kings Canyon National Park, borders Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States, and has a multitude of its own majestic mountains. UNESCO has also designated Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks a Biosphere Reserve.
Sequoia National Park’s No. 1 attraction is the General Sherman Tree, which is the largest tree on Earth by volume. It measures approximately 275 feet tall and is more than 36 feet in diameter at its base. Other must-see sights in Sequoia National Park include the Tunnel Log, a fallen giant sequoia you can drive through; Crescent Meadow, which is best seen via a 1.5-mile loop trail; and Moro Rock, the top of which can be reached by a concrete and stone stairway with handrails. If you can make it up the 350 stairs to the top, you will be rewarded with some of the park’s most panoramic views.
The best time to visit Sequoia National Park is from June to September when the weather is best. If visiting during the winter to avoid the summer crowds, be aware that snow can fall heavily this time of year and snow chains might be required.
