Script Your Own Adventure
With more than 400,000 acres of forested, mountainous terrain, there is plenty to do in the park. You’re sure to find something that piques your interest, from fishing to taking a tranquil drive through the giant redwoods. This ancient forest is home to five out of ten of the world’s largest trees, including the General Sherman Tree.
Named after Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman, this tree stands as the largest currently living tree in the world. The giant forest of Sequoia National Park comprises more than half the park’s acreage and shares its space with the old-growth forests of Kings Canyon. Together these two parks preserve the scenery of the Sierra Nevada Mountains so that it reflects how the forest likely looked before American settlement.
Spend a day on the water and catch some fish. The exotic rivers of Sequoia are home to many unique types of fish. Some fish can be taken from the park, while others are required to be released. Ensure you can have an enjoyable fishing trip by obtaining a proper California fishing license, and study the state fishing regulations before you embark on your journey.
There are many adventures to be had in the ancient forest. The vastness of the redwoods allows for plenty of hiking trails that take you all throughout the park. As you make your way through this sprawling nature preserve, take a moment to appreciate the deer, bears, coyotes, and other wildlife that roam free, their habitat unspoiled.
