WELCOME TO SEQUOIA
In Sequoia National Park you find yourself standing with reverence in the realm of the world’s largest living things, the Big Trees. From the Big Tree area the Sequoia back country rises gradually to the loftiest point in the United States, Mt. Whitney, 14,496 feet high. From this eminence, reached by winding trail, you may gaze down the abrupt, breath-taking escarpment of the east Sierra Nevada into Death Valley. The lure of this park is not limited to big trees. There are hundred miles of scenic trails, bear, deer, and other wildlife; mountain meadows, lakes, and cascading streams; and colossal gorges.

WHY WE LOVE THIS PARK
What is so stirring is how young you feel beneath the boughs of this ancient fantasy forest. As you consider how aged and wise these trees of Sequoia are, you begin to feel new and innocent by comparison.

SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK: GENERAL'S HIGHWAY
The idea of a master scenic highway that joined national parks in the west inspired Sequoia and General Grant to build their own connection. Superintendent John R. White believed that most visitors to either park could then enter by one, and exit by the other. Generals Highway was dedicated on June 23, 1935, and linked, not only the two parks, but the famous General Sherman and General Grant giant Sequoia trees.
