TOP 9 SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK ATTRACTIONS

Whether you snowshoe in the park in the winter or stargaze through the treetops in the summer, Sequoia National Park is the ideal destination for your next outdoor adventure. As you explore these amazing parks, these suggested sites are worth the visit. 

General Sherman Tree

Hangout with the largest tree in the world. Standing 275 feet tall and over 36 feet in diameter, General Sherman is a site to behold.  After all, it is the largest living thing on the planet! Wander the nearby trails to Giant Forest sequoia grove or simply look in awe at this natural wonder.

Moro Rock

This can’t miss site (literally) can be seen right as you drive into Sequoia National Park. The climb up the 350 or so stairs to the top of Moro Rock is a challenge but you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the great western divide and the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Tunnel Log

In 1938 this fallen sequoia tree was turned into a place visitors can walk (and even drive) under. Tunnel Log is located along the Crescent Meadow Road in Giant Forest.

Hospital Rock

Visitors will enjoy picnicking at Hospital Rock picnic area or following a short trail leading to a nearby waterfall. Here you will find Native American pictographs as well as bedrock mortar sites, evidence of the Potwisha Native Americans that once inhabited this area.

Mineral King

This glacial valley of Sequoia National Park is most popular with backpackers and hikers. From open meadows to granite peaks waterfalls and lakes, this slice of nature is an explorer’s dream. Camp overnight at one of two Mineral King campgrounds or just stay for the day.

Giant Forest Museum

Stop in to learn more about these great beauties and the history of Sequoia National Park. Then, take a self-guided trail leading from the museum to Round Meadow and Hazelwood.

Tokopah Falls

Find the trailhead in the back parking lot at Lodgepole Visitors Center and enjoy this hike along the river to Tokopah Falls, a 1,200 foot cascading waterfall. 

Crescent Meadow

This easy walk on a paved path leads visitors around the beautiful meadow. For a bit longer of a hike, head to Tharp's Log for a quirky bit of national park history.

Crystal Cave - Closed For The 2020 Season

A visitor favorite, wander the half mile loop through this marble cavern filled with a dizzying display of stalactites and stalagmites. Plan on spending half your day traveling to the cave and exploring what’s inside. Guided tours are offered spring-fall and reservations are required with Sequoia Parks Conservancy.
