Tourist information and destination rating

Category: National parks, Local time: 06:07:34, Altitude: 2160m

The Sequoia National Park is located in California . The park was founded in 1890 and is thus the second oldest national park in the USA . It attracts tourists to giant sequoias, especially the one called General Sherman, which is one of the largest trees in the whole world. The park also includes the highest mountain of the USA (if we do not count Alaska ) – the 4.421 meters-high Mount Whitney .

About the park

The Sequoia National Park is named after the giant sequoias that have been growing in the area for thousands of years. The sequoias only grow in higher altitudes (above 1,500 m above sea level) and the local humid climate is also good for them. There are groups of sequoias in the ordinary mixed forests in the park. In the so-called Giant Forest, you will find five out of the ten largest trees in the world. The most famous of them is the tree General Sherman. Its age has been estimated to be over 2,300 years, its height is 83.8 meters, which means that it is simply impossible to take a single photo of it. Other popular attractions include driving a car through the trunk of a fallen sequoia, the so-called Tunnel Log, or a log cabin carved out in a sequoia, called the Tharp's Log. Another place of interest in the park is a meadow surrounded by the majestic sequoias- the Crescent Meadow. However, the Sequoia National Park is not only about those giant trees. Over 200 caves have been discovered in the park- e.g. the Crystal Cave is accessible to public. The popular viewing place Moro Rock offers breathtaking views of most of the park.

Mount Whitney

Experienced hikers could be interested in climbing Mount Whitney . It is necessary to get permission for this hike. The rise on the mountain itself is quite demanding- the trail to the top and back is 35.5 km long, vertical distance 1,859 meters. Therefore, it is advisable to set off early in the morning or split the trip into more days.

Useful information

The road called Generals Highway leads to most of the park's greatest attractions but a big part of the park is accessible only on foot or horse. That is why it is an attractive destination for wilderness lovers- the nature in the park is almost in the same state as it used to be before the first Europeans arrived to America. The entrance fee to the park (valid for 7 days) is 20 dollars per car and 10 dollars for a cyclist or a pedestrian and includes the neighboring Kings Canyon National Park as well.


There are several hotels and camps directly in the park. When camping, it is necessary to carefully hide all food– in lower areas, the black bears will definitely sniff it out as well as marmots in higher altitudes.


By car, take the road from the city Fresno . In the park, you can use free public transport- the shuttle bus- that goes around the park.
