Majestic Mountain Loop

Along the way you can see the largest living tree, explore fascinating underground caves, hike to stunning waterfalls, and feast on some of the most magnificent vistas of the high sierra. Take your pick of special activities such as hiking, swimming, kayaking, fishing, snowshoeing and much, much more.
