What to Expect

The largest trees in the world – Sequoiadendron giganteum or the giant sequoia – are the top draw for many visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. And this slice of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California is indeed one of the best places to see these incredible, awe-inspiring trees. You will see incredible trees!

But there’s many more spectacular things to see and experience that these impressive parks have to offer. Sequoia and Kings Canyon are also full of rushing rivers, steep canyons, vertical mountain peaks, granite domes and elaborate caves. Wildlife like black bears, mule deer, mountain lions, marmots and bighorn sheep make their homes here. More than a thousand miles of hiking trails wind through the parks’ wild backcountry; this is also a wonderful place for rock climbing, fishing, horseback riding, and winter sports.

Everyone should see the wonders of Sequoia and Kings Canyon at least once in their lifetime. And whether you have a day or two to tour the parks, or plan to return for multiple visits, you’ll always find something new and exciting to explore.
