“Unparalleled Views in the California High Sierras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

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!

“You must see these living Giants!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We went to this park in mid June 2013. It was amazing day trip. I entered to park from Three River entrance. 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, see the Crystal cave. Cave tour need at least 3 hours. Then go to the Giant sequoia museum and park your vehicle there. From that point, you can take the free shuttle. Take a free shuttle to Morrow rock. When you come back from the morrow rock, next shuttle stop is crescent meadow. You must walk through trials and enjoy the nature. Then take a shuttle go to see the world largest tree General Sherman. If you have more time explore further. I will go again very soon to cover the kings canyon park

“Sequoia National Park is Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We loved this national park, we went to the visitors center at Kings Canyon, we talked with Judy. She was full of knowledge, steered us is the right direction. 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 back roads to expedite our travels. She is awesome"
