We did the lakes trail to watchtower and further on to the first lake (forgot the name). During our 6.5 hour hike we saw only about 8 other hikers. We did see a moose deer and a baby bear with it's mother. The mother bear was only about 30 ft from us when we saw her and that was terrifying,... More

The Lakes Trail in Sequoia National park offers unparalleled views of the California High Sierras. It is a rugged, steep climb and not for the faint of heart, but well worth the effort to get out there!

If you only have one day, you need to see Morrow rock, Crescent meadow, General Sherman tree and Crystal cave. These are key attractions of the Sequoia national park. Best thing go early as possible you can. First,... More

Everything she told us to do was one hundred percent great. She is a valuable employee. She even told us the best way to get out of the park and some... More
