Your next adventure starts here! Year-round recreational opportunities abound on almost 550 miles of wild and scenic beauty. The Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument are named for the giant sequoia, the world’s largest tree. Located at the southernmost end of the Sierra Nevada in Central California, the 1.2 million-acre landscape is as spectacular as its 38 groves of giant sequoia that the monument protects (Sequoiadendron giganteum). These trees can tower 270 feet high and reach 30 feet in diameter. Our elevations range from 2,000 feet in the foothills to peaks over 10,000 feet offering spectacular views and adventure in giant redwood groves, granite monoliths, glacier-torn canyons, roaring rivers and lush flower-filled meadows.
