Sequoia National Park located in the southern Sierra Nevada offers countless points of interest to explore: Majestic giant sequoias and redwoods, soaring Sierra spires, and North America’s deepest canyons. Recreational opportunities expand dramatically from late spring to early autumn. There are more than 800 miles of hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous. Horseback riding, fly fishing, stargazing, and spelunking are on the itinerary.
Sandy coves and beaches line the shores of picturesque Hume Lake, which is stocked with trout. Spend a few hours admiring the magnificent views from your canoe or kayak. When you add snowmelt to some of the deepest natural canyons in the world, the result is going to be waterfalls. The star of the show is Tokopah Falls in Sequoia National Park. Officially 1,200 high, Tokopah Falls is a series of small cascades. In winter with the snow covered boughs and branches Sequoia becomes a magical winter wonderland. Enjoy the cross country skiing and snow shoeing.
